You can try Family Dental 64533993 - it's at Ang Mo Kio. Charges were reasonable the last time I went (some years back), but it's very crowded (probably cos the charges were not expensive; the reason I've stopped going is cos of the wait time).

I used to wear braces when I was young.

I agreed that price is one consideration but quality of it also impt.I went to three different ordo, first two doctor even finished doing it, but the result was not good, so I ended up going for the third, redo everything, wasted time and effort that I spent in the first two ordo....But with the third ordo, price higher, qulity better....

Not sure, is the situation still like that for braces making...

Just one cent of my thought.

Ya, waste money and time and the pain that I have gone thr....

Look for a reliable Ordon is very impt.

My girl will be making her braces probably year end.

I guess for govt, adjustment may take longer time.

Hi Kitty,

Family Dental Surgery is at Blk 302 Ang Mo Kio Ave 3 #01-1836 Singapore 560302. You can try walking from AMK central - about 10-15mins I recall.

Dentist is a very nice guy, but do call in advance. I'm sure they will be able to give you an estimate how much it will cost.

my DD and DS did the braces this yr in Feb.
DD extracted 4 teeth(2 teeth each visit), DS extracted 2 teeth. :cry:
After extraction, there is this metal "band" needed to be inserted around the 4 molars.Bands has to be done within one to two weeks of teeth extraction to prevent movement of teeth, if not the mould done earlier will not be accurate. Basically, from tooth extraction to band, have to see the doc weekly, then follow by monthly visit to do adjustment.

So far, DD & DS are used to mthly adjustments (mouth a bit sore for a day or two).

Estimated Dental charges is S$3600 (excludes extractions)
