When you give to the NDCS Tooth Fairy Fund, you support needy patients in defraying the cost of their dental treatment, which they may otherwise opt not to receive. These treatments range from basic procedures such as extractions, scaling and polishing, to more complex ones for conditions such as head and neck cancer. Every year, about 100 patients apply for financial assistance from the fund to see them through dental treatments. Without support, these patients would have to live with ongoing pain and discomfort and, in some instances, poor chewing function due to lost teeth.
Your support will enable these patients to access the treatment they need, regain their dignity and enjoy better quality of life, which will contribute to their overall health and wellbeing.
The fund also supports research and education initiatives conducted under the SingHealth Duke-NUS Oral Health Academic Clinical Programme. Some of our research activities at NDCS:
In FY17, through generous donations from the public and staff, NDCS raised over S$95,000 for needy patients and research and education efforts. With your support, we can continue to transform lives through better oral healthcare that reaches all segments of society.
