Using modern technology to provide conservative dental treatment without compromising value and quality for our patients

Dental Essence is established by Dr. Andrew Lui, BDSc (Melbourne) and Dr. Gareth Pearson, BDS MSc (UK).

It Started with a Vision:
Both arrived in Singapore as young expatriate doctors in 2001, one from Down Under Melbourne and the other from Great Britain.

Their joint and separate working experience shaped their common core beliefs of the practice of dentistry. They envisioned a practice where the quality of dental care and treatment would not be compromised and the preservation of tooth structure is a priority. Driven by that premise, in 2009, Dental Essence was born, with its first clinic in Tudor Court.

The start of a business between Andrew and Gareth also forged a wonderful friendship.  A partnership that stems from trust, strong commitment, and dedication to doing what is right in both their professional and personal lives.

In February 2016, Dental Essence expanded its Tudor court clinic to facilitate the vision of integrated care. Visiting and residing dental specialists can now conveniently co-treat complex and complicated cases under one roof. We have been at Tudor Court for almost 8 years and hopefully will be for many more.

In doubling our size and centralizing our operation, we will now be able to offer you a more fully integrated dental experience complete with our in-house periodontist and oral surgeon.

The core team also grew since 2013 having two more dentists and two specialists:

  • Dr. Linda Yen – BDS Hons (Sydney) FRACDS
  • Dr Damini Chawla – BDS Hons (Perth)
  • Dr Edwin Heng – BDS MSD Oral Biology, Cert in Periodontology (Boston)
    FAMS (Singapore)
  • Dr Sun Din Loo – Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon
    MDS Oral Maxillo-Facial Surgery (Hong Kong)
    BDS (Singapore), FAMS (Singapore)

Despite the changes, the mantra by its founding partners remains true today: use of modern technology to provide conservative dental treatment without compromising value and quality for their patients. It is this strong belief and commitment that Dental Essence’s customers today are not just patients but many have become friends.
