Dr Gerald Tan has wide experience after serving as a commissioned dental officer at the Singapore Armed Forces, National Dental Centre Singapore, SingHealth Polyclinics and the School Dental Centre, Health Promotion Board before moving out to the private sector.

“I am able to see how individuals can be made more attractive and beautiful. I advocate that an individual should have the right to good self-esteem, together with good oral health for confidence. I believe in strict confidentiality and respect for time, but above all else I approach every case with an open mind and a listening ear."
A bespoke custom smile design starts with listening to the clients’ wants, desires and concerns and that is very often what matters most, before a unique treatment plan can be tailored. "I am extremely excited to be at the forefront of what aesthetic and implant dentistry has to offer in the future, especially with the explosion of new methods and technology. I hope to change the common negative mindset regarding dental treatment and celebrate the fact that relationships are built through an unforgettable smile.”
