Pros

  • Specialised in wisdom tooth extraction
  • Minimally painful to pain-free procedure
  • Painless injection
  • Specialist doctor available for sedation
  • Latest equipment
  • Reasonable fees
  • Comfortable environment

Cons

  • Closed on Sundays

Yes, okay: the name seems obvious here, but it can’t be helped. A list about the best clinics for wisdom tooth extraction without The Wisdom Tooth Clinic is just wrong.

Have you heard of anyone so excited to have their wisdom tooth removed? No? Neither have we, which is expected because it is one of the dreaded dental operations.

Although curious, we did not ask the founders of this clinic why they chose to focus only on this direful procedure. It doesn’t really matter anyway – the important thing is perfecting the craft.

Which the dentists in The Wisdom Tooth Clinic already did. That is if we take into account the perfect 5/5 rating in both Google and Facebook reviews.

Dr Loh Hong Sai and Dr Melvin Mark Chia are equally loved by patients too, based on our survey. Most of their patients talked about their pain-free and quick experiences when seen by this duo.

Now, with a niche market and highly skilled dental surgeons, you may be thinking there’s a catch: the rates are likely expensive.

Well, actually, their fees are within the range of wisdom tooth extraction in Singapore. What we also like about The Wisdom Tooth Clinic is that they are very open about pricing.

They even have an actual page on their website solely dedicated to their fees. There, they also include what is covered by Medisave. 

The patients also mentioned how comfortable the environment is. Some even claimed that the clinic has a cheery vibe, which is not the usual word associated with dental clinics.

All things considered, we believe that The Wisdom Tooth Clinic is the best in Singapore. If you need a wisdom tooth removed, you know where to go, just not on a Sunday.

Pros

  • Highly skilled dentist with admirable bedside manner
  • Cheaper/competitive price
  • Friendly and assuring staff
  • Accessible location
  • Open all days of the week

Cons

  • Scheduling system needs improvement
  • Tight area for X-ray/imaging

Wisdom tooth extraction can give even the bravest slight apprehension. Fortunately, people we talked to said that Dr Jade Foo See Theng can help there since her skills are ‘magical’.

A patient used exactly that word when describing how the process went for her. And we cannot argue with that description since the patient’s wisdom tooth was extracted within 10 minutes.

More or less, the patients we talked to have the same experience. They gave three reasons for recommending Caring Dental in Punggol.

First is Dr Jade’s expertise in wisdom tooth extraction. Of course, it depends on the case, but typically, she can complete the procedure fairly quickly. 

As she fully knows what she is doing, she is able to explain the process in a detailed manner. Her instructions regarding aftercare are on point as well.

Second is her bedside manner. Gentle, friendly and caring are how some patients of Dr Jade described her.

She is known to give up her lunch period to accommodate patients with urgent dental concerns. And yes, wisdom tooth extraction falls under such concerns.

Third is the cost. To some people, going to the dentist means either of these two things: painful or expensive. This is not the case for Caring Dental in Punggol.

Wisdom tooth extraction here is actually cheaper than in other clinics in the city. Given the kind of service Dr Jade offers, no wonder patients sing praises for this clinic. 

We also like to commend the staff for their efficiency in assisting Dr Jade. Their caring and compassionate attitude towards patients is noted by patients as well.

If we are pressed for a downside, then we choose scheduling. Sometimes, those with appointments are overlooked for walk-in patients who have urgent needs. 

We understand why. Still, it can be a cause of frustration for those with appointments. The clinic may allot some leeway in between patients in case of emergencies.

To add another one under the pros though, the clinic is located near the MRT station. What we love more is that it is open all days of the week.

In short, Caring Dental is an accessible, affordable and great place for wisdom tooth extraction. Other dental services offered by the clinic are more than satisfactory, too.

Pros

  • Team of seven dentists
  • Affordable rates
  • Wide range of dental services
  • Accessible location

Cons

  • Only by appointments on Sundays

Living up to its name, NoFrills Dental is pretty straightforward when offering solutions to patients. They intend to provide quality yet affordable dental services – no more, no less.

When deciding whether to have your wisdom tooth removed or not, you don’t want to make it more complicated than it already is. This is why we listed NoFrills Dental here.

Once you finally get the courage to do it, you are in good hands with Dr Kenneth Siah. The clinic actually has seven dentists, but Dr Siah usually does wisdom tooth extraction.

From the initial consultation to post-surgery care, Dr Siah informs his patients of every pertinent detail about the procedure. In doing so, he is able to alleviate their anxiety.

With 18 years of experience, Dr Siah can manage to extract a wisdom tooth swiftly and nearly pain-free. You can come in and out of the clinic in less than half an hour.

And let’s talk about the strategic location of the clinic. Employees working near Suntec City can easily drop by after office hours to get the procedure done. This we really like.

Although it’s closed on Sundays and public holidays, we are pleased to note that the clinic is still open to see patients with appointments. 

4. Advanced Dental

Pros

  • Nearly 36 years of operation
  • A large team of licensed dentists
  • Several branches all over the island
  • Strategic locations
  • Easy booking

Cons

  • Slightly pricier (still CHAS subsidies and Medisave may be applied)

The first clinic of Advanced Dental was established in 1986. For all they’ve done to grow the business since then, we have no doubt that they are experts in the industry.

The company has an absolutely massive team of board-certified dentists. With 16 branches and counting all over Singapore, this is expected, even required.

Whichever branch is closest to you, there is a dental surgeon present to extract your wisdom tooth. For this review, we zoomed in on the one in Tampines North.

Many patients who went to Advanced Dental in Tampines praised Dr Priscilla Ng. She has gained a reputation for how she deals with patients suffering from dentophobia. 

The anxiety and/or fear of patients slotted to have their wisdom tooth extracted can be likened to dentophobia. In their shoes, we would like Dr Ng to take care of us. 

Several patients who underwent this procedure described their experience as comfortable. We didn’t think to use this word in relation to a dental visit.

But there you have it. Others shared that Dr Ng is not only caring and personable but also knowledgeable. During consultations, she explains the process extensively.

Another thing explained in detail to patients (albeit not by the attending dentist) is the pricing. We are glad that no one gets blindsided by additional charges. 

Actually, all branches of Advanced Dental have good online ratings, mostly between 4.7 and 4.9 out of 5. So, in the end, it depends on whichever is most convenient to you.

Pros

  • 30 years of experience
  • Warm and friendly staff
  • Cost within the city median

Cons

  • Focuses more on other dental treatments

We really value experience when coming up with our lists. We believe that it lends credibility and translates to quality service. 

That said, we couldn’t leave out Lee & Lee Dental Surgeons. After all, more than 30 years of experience is nothing to sneeze at. 

It conveys that Singaporeans have trusted them for that long. And trust is something we want to feel towards anyone coming close to our mouth with modern equipment.

The clinic has already grown in that it has three branches in Singapore. We focused on the one in Tampines.

Actually, the two clinics in Tampines before are now merged into one. And loyal patients continue to remain happy with the services provided, based on our poll.

We love that patients we talked to have been with Lee & Lee Dental Surgeons for years now. This speaks volumes regarding patient satisfaction.

The clinic offers a wide range of dental services. So, patients who were satisfied with the other services didn’t think of going someplace else for their wisdom tooth extraction. 

Patients we surveyed also expressed how thankful they were to the doctors and staff for making dental care not something to be feared. This is because of their expertise and bedside manner.

Admittedly, with the many services of Lee & Lee Dental Surgeons, the focus is not exactly on wisdom tooth extraction. Nevertheless, we still think it’s a great option.
