Our dental specialists are regularly invited to speak at professional dental meetings and/or community events to share their knowledge and experience in dental procedures.
Many of our dentists are either current or former professors / faculty members at the National University of Singapore and other international universities. We also actively contribute professional articles to clinical journals such as the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry, the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics, Cosmetic Dentistry and the International Journal of Prosthodontics.
