Any good dentist to recommend for a 3 yr old?

Postby scramble » Fri Aug 10, 2012 4:05 pm

Hi mummies,

Anyone has a good dentist to recommend for my 3 year old boy? It's going to be his first experience. And I really hope it will be a pleasant one.

Any recommendation is much appreciated!

The best child (pediatric) dentist I have ever met and used for both my kids is Dr Tan Wee Kiat, a senior consultant at the National Dental Centre Singapore.

She saved my DS tooth at age 7, when another dentist said had to remove.

All the best!

You can look for Dr Rashid of The Kid Dentist located at the Camden Medical centre. He is good in dealing little kids. Both my kids are with him since 4 years till now ( already P1 & P3).

Thanks LOLMum, struggling, chubby08 and karenmok for the recommendations!

I will go look them up! I have heard of some horror stories about Q&M though. Might just give them a miss.

Thanks anyway!

No prob.
You can see Dr Tan's profile ( she's a lady) through the local health app ' Health Buddy'. I downloaded to my iPhone and found it's got lots if useful info,... I'm turning into a health freak!

Tried Dr Rashid before and I don't like him as i find him arrogant. His clinic decor is very child friendly and I guess this is something that will entice the kids. And of course theres a picture , he with ex Minister George Yeo and he hanged it on the wall... but I was not impressed at all lor.
