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 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:
To cater to its growing patient base, in April 2014, Dental Essence expanded its operations into a second location at Forum the Shopping Mall along Orchard Road so that their patients have the choice to visit either of the clinics more convenient to them. In 2016, Dental Essence expanded its Tudor court clinic to facilitate the vision of integrated care. Visiting and residing dental specialists now can conveniently co-treat complex and complicated cases under one roof.
The core team also grew from two dentists to five with Dr. Linda Yen, BDS HONS (Sydney) FRACDS joining Dental Essence in 2013, followed by Dr Edwin Heng, BDS MSD Oral Biology, Cert in Periodontology (Boston) FAMS (Singapore) in XXXX and Dr Damini Chawla Sharma,BDS Hon (WA) in 2015.
However, despite the rapid changes, the mantra by its founding partners remains true till 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.
