Care Partnership Programme (CaPP)

The National Dental Centre Singapore (NDCS)'s Care Partnership Programme (CaPP) ensures that patients with stable dental conditions are co-managed and discharged to a group of like-minded care partners in the community. This is aligned with the MOH's vision, "Beyond Hospital to Community", in which tertiary healthcare institutions such as NDCS work closely with community partners to provide robust primary care for Singaporeans.

Since its launch in April 2017, the CaPP has grown to include the following areas of dentistry:

  • Periodontics
  • Prosthodontics (crowns and dentures)
  • Geriatric Special Care
  • Pediatric Dentistry


The CaPP aims to forge community partnerships and create a strong primary care network that is connected seamlessly with NDCS. This will allow co-management of cases and smoother transition of patients from NDCS to the primary care setting.


Patients under the CaPP enjoy benefits such as:

  • A cap on treatment fees at partner clinics
  • Follow-up support by officers at NDCS's Care Transition Office
  • Convenient treatment at a GDP located close to home


As more like-minded partners come on board the CaPP, we aim to develop a Dental Primary Care Network that will provide primary dental treatment to the community and refer patients to tertiary institutions for more complex dental treatment. They will also take on the management of chronic care patients, and monitor clinical outcomes and protocols.
