One of the most dreadful things in life is to visit a dentist. I mean, who likes having weird equipments drilling in your mouth? Not to mention nasty dentists and nurses who seem bent on “torturing” you. I think this pretty much sums it up.
But my impression of dentists changed after my visit to Tooth Angels & Co. Dental Surgeons (The Central #B1-01, 6 Eu Tong Sen Street, Tel: +65 6222 6220). It has three clinics at Clarke Quay, Coronation Plaza and Chinatown, and they are fully equipped with the latest dental technology.
My dentist, Dr Melvin Chia, is one of the best in the field, and together with the team of friendly staff, they ensured a smooth extraction of my wisdom tooth.

Extracting wisdom tooth is always a scary process, but there’s really nothing to worry about when you are in the safe hands of the team at Tooth Angels.
The reason Tooth Angels is so good is because they genuinely care for their patients’ state of health intermittently, and go all out to make them feel at ease.
Throughout the wisdom tooth extraction, Dr Chia would explain each step in a very composed manner, and his reassuring tone helped to calm me down. And the nurses would give encouragement by the side, and constantly check to see if I am okay.
The two wisdom teeth on top came out easily. In fact, Dr Chia took it out so quickly that I did not even realise it. The tooth at my bottom left was slightly trickier. It refused to budge, so they had to use a different method. He told me nicely that he was going to do something and I was to not worry about the screeching sound. Even though I knew that they were going to drill a hole to take out the wisdom tooth, I was not afraid as I trusted them to do the job.
It was a relatively painless procedure. It took three hours for the anaesthesia to wear off, and while it hurt a little after that, I ate proper food (because I am a glutton) two days after the extraction.
All in all, I had a pleasant experience, and I’d recommend to go to Tooth Angels for all your dental needs.
The cost of wisdom tooth extraction at Tooth Angels is S$1,250 for 1 tooth, S$2150 for 2-3 teeth, and S$2900 for all four. Do note that prices may vary slightly depending on the complexity.
The good news is you can choose to pay for wisdom tooth extraction using your Medisave. For those of you who do not have sufficient savings in Medisave, you can also choose to pay by using your parents’, spouse’s or sibling’s Medisave.

Any other dentists in singapore you can recommend?
Recently had my wisdom teeth extracted there. Service was average. In fact, the experience was cold and pure commercial, nothing angelic about them or the experience. Dr Chia was 1.5hrs late, but not apologetic at all, just keen to get to the procedure right away. He didn’t even address me with my name! After the procedure, neither him nor his staff asked if I wanted to keep my wisdom teeth. By the time I remembered, they had already threw them away. To him, it was just another patient, another teeth. Get it done, next. Every blogger that talked about him said there was no pain. That’s true, but I think other dentist surgeon could achieve that after giving the LA. My conclusion? Overhyped, over marketed. And a dentist with good commercial sense.
