Dentistry

The Department of Dentistry provides both general and advanced specialist dental care including dental implants, braces, jaw surgery, aesthetic dental restorations and facial pain therapy. We strive to provide multi-disciplinary, integrated and team-based dental care that is customised to individual patients’ needs. Each patient will be assigned a primary clinician who will be responsible for the planning and coordination of the treatment to ensure continuity of care.

JurongHealth Campus’ Department of Dentistry is accredited by the Singapore Dental Council as a provider of Continuing Professional Education. We regularly conduct training and continuing education courses for dentists in Singapore and Asia-Pacific. We are also active in research with collaborations with institutions and organisations such as Peking University, National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, Ngee Ann Polytechnic, other regional universities, Singapore Armed Forces, etc.

In addition to our inpatients and outpatients, the Department also attends to specialist referrals from the region, other local public and private hospitals, polyclinics, the Singapore Armed Forces, schools’ dental services, as well as referrals from private medical and dental practitioners.
