About_UsDental 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 practise where quality of dental care and treatment would not be compromised and the preservation of tooth structure is 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 to doing what is right in both their professional and personal lives.

The Business is Growing:
In 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. So after three enjoyable years at The Forum Shopping Mall, we have made the decision to leave following the expansion of our Mother branch. 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. Your dental records and any X-rays will be transferred to our Tudor Court branch, and as our computer system is fully integrated and in sync with our main clinic, you don’t have to do anything. Any appointments you have booked in the near future should be unaffected.

And of course, you’ll be seeing the same dentist — we’re not going anywhere!

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.
