Dental Check for Secondary Pupils

Postby popireis » Tue Jan 07, 2014 9:24 am

Hi, not sure if there is a same thread, tried searching but did not find any.

Anyone knows what does the dental services for secondary pupils cover?
Will they do referrals if they find that the child need and is ready for braces, i.e. all adult teeth are out?
Is there any difference in cost whether referred by them or we get it done by pte dentist?

Do Secondary Schools provide dental service in the schools?

Yes, they do referral

not sure.
But if the child still schooling, better ask the dentist to write a referral letter

http://www.ndcs.com.sg/FORPATIENTSANDVI ... /Home.aspx

In your email, please include the patient's Name, NRIC or Birth Certificate or Passport number and contact number.

If you are visiting NDCS for the first time, please also include:
- Referral status (self, polyclinic, school, general dentist or others)
- Brief description of your dental needs if you do not have a referral letter
