    • Hi! 

       

      I am back after so long... I had stopped posting but since it is 2018 and it is about resolution... I will join in, I hope 2018 has not much worst changes as compared to 2017 as the year is pretty sad and tragic enough.

    • Work on composing rhymes and poetry.

      Example:

      You need a sense of humour

      To avoid the development of tumours.

       

      It rhymes cos it's TRUTH.

    • Just make sure you see a dentist with specialist training in Orthodontics (braces). Usually the dentist will have additional qualifications such as MDS (Orthodontics). You can check by asking if your dentist has specialised training or look for their qualifications on https://prs.moh.gov.sg/prs/internet/profSearch/main.action?hpe=SDC & look for his/her name on this website: http://www.aos.org.sg/

       

      Braces treatment is not taught in the Undergraduate Program at all so a lot of the general dental practitioners (GPs) are not even trained to do braces when they graduate. Orthodontics (braces) is actually a 3 year full time Masters program: http://www.dentistry.nus.edu.sg/GDS/GDS_orthortp.html.

       

      Often, GPs do it as it is lucrative just like how medical GPs do liposuction & end up causing a few deaths. They'll will tell you that they have additional training. However, you can judge for yourself if this weekend training is adequate just by looking at their curriculum as compared to a 3 year full time Masters program: http://www.cgdp.org.sg/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Brochure-Group6-Ortho.pdf.

       

      Is 12 days of training sufficient? Also they do not have any assessment or any hands on training or supervision.

       

      Just look at these news:

      1) http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/health/dentist-suspended-over-treatment-that-left-patient-worse-off

      2) http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/dentist-pulled-out-boys-four-teeth-unnecessarily

       

      Some people might say that seeing specialist is more costly. But will you see your GP downstairs to have an open heart operation? Also there's more affordable options such as seeing a dentist with specialist training in Hospitals such as National Dental Centre, KTPH, NUH. There's no long waiting time & prices are affordable. Most importantly, these hospital dentists will do a good job & not rush. Think about it, private GPs will just rush the treatment as time is $ for them but hospital dentists doesn't have such pressure.
