Don't go to NDC. The whole bloody centre full of dentists but make you wait so many days and week to see dentist and then when start treatment, you got to go back so many times to complete the treatment.

Go private so fast can get the problem solved. This blood sucker centre is useless. Something must be done about the efficiency of this place.
more or less you are correct. My colleague walk in as a private patient for doing crowning also have to wait for 3 months.

I cannot imagine when my tooth pain that needs immediate root canal treatment and have to wait for few months..

However, cost for private dental specialist in Singapore is also quite expensive. my this year saving going to be all gone to dental treatment...

went to this dental clinic Horizon at Manhattan House. scaling and polishing cost me $75.

waiting time, 6 days.

Dr was very thorough in checking and cleaning. He spent some checking, as I complained about some pain when biting for the past few days. the cleaning process also took more 25 mins. I remembered my visit to the poly dental visit was less than 15 mins.

For $24 more, shorter waiting time, I think I'll just stick to this dental from now on.

my neighbourhood dental charged my wife $95 for s&p.

$75 should be reasonable.

teehee don't have slots for the $55 s&p promo at the moment.


just went for a a scaling and polishing at toa payoh polyclinic.

consultation: 16
scaling: 17
polishing: 17

total 51

that is without fluoride application.

I think my neighbourhood dental have a polishing, scaling and fluoride application at 70+.

I had booked an appointment for my wife, and shall update the price.


wife went to neighbourhood dentist for scaling and polishing and it cost $95.

not sure the polyclinic price for PR. might bring her to teehee next time.

Thanks for sharing.

According to ST news, this clinic was brought over by Q&M back in 2017. Always good to have alternative option, wonder if their current pricing is based on Q&M.

based on this website, I was charged 74.9, which is the price of s&p at q&m. but website said consultation is 21.40, which I was not charged.

Can't comment since I never visit that clinic in recent time but I guessed it more or less similar to others in the same NUP group.

Well, you soon find out. Do post your experience here.
