    Total + 7% = $62.00

    2) Dr Name printed on reciept.

    Overall:
    1) Good professional.
    2) Good service, as we are 1st timer, with no appointment. We went early to wait for the clinic to open, at 8.55am.
    Dr XXX came and start on us asap as he has another appointment at 9am.

    Re: Recommendation for Dentist

    Hi ppl. I have some visible gum problems. Some friends were telling me it was getting worse. Fearing it was gum cancer(ya i'm a bit paranoid when it comes to this things), I quickly walked into Raffles Dental at Causeway Point Woodlands after lunch. Luckily they had a slot for me despite their busy schedule. The dentist who attended to me(pretty young lady) thought I was joking when I dropped the bomb on her, "I think I have gum cancer!!!!" Anyway, after putting some of her equipment in my mouth, she told me I just had a lot of plaque and tartar deposits on my teeth and gums and that was causing the gum problems. She said she can carry on to do "root planing" for me, at the cost of $140 per quadrant. After almost an hour of drilling and digging, my upper teeth were free of plaque and tartar. Thats 2 quadrants. Total damage:- 140x2 + 30(consultation) + gst = $331.70 !!!
    In my 27 yrs of life, this is the most I've spent on a 1 time healthcare visit. I still have to do the same procedure for my lower teeth, that's another 2 quadrants. Anyone with similar experiences or otherwise can recommend a cheaper alternative? Pocket burning...

    just to rant...

    went to national dental center last week amidst the heavy downpour. wait almost 1/2 hour to see the dentist. a cold souless bugger. who partly resemble CSJ. reallee he do.

    put through the process of checking teeth, then sent out to x ray. and when return, he said in such sober manner, i tot someone he knew must hv died. gg into the story, he exprain the crown for the molar will set me back by $1400, plus plus plus. plus $300 if there r emergency surgery for the gum. etc. no cpf. i must hv shafted him btwn the legs when i asked if the molar could be removed instead... he does a capitalist stare and say this may b cosmetic disaster, etc then choked to say it is reallee not an issue as i hv enough molar. the pain of losing $$ must hv hurting. the nurse at the reception who took note of my acceptance for this surgery then exprain it would take a farking 11 months waiting. like wat the fark... the baby would hv celebrated his full month by then.

    today, i managed to get a price fr Q&M... only $400-600. damned...and it's only 4 month wait.



    i was nearly robbed.

    Hi Apollo

    You serious about getting the above done? I have a personal friend who is one of the big time dentist in Singapore. I can intro you and get you scheduled in much faster than that. Price wise I am not sure, but he charges fair market rates - and I'm sure he'll give you a discount since intro by me. You can get him to quote and see if you interested before committing. Let me know if keen.
    You know we're sitting on four million pounds of fuel, one nuclear weapon and a thing that has 270,000 moving parts built by the lowest bidder. Makes you feel good, doesn't it?
