Geriatric Special Care Dentistry Clinic

​The Geriatric Special Care Dentistry Clinic (GSDC) is set up to provide specialised and holistic dental care for the elderly and special needs patients.

Managed by a multidisciplinary team of dental specialists, general dentists and oral health therapists, they are equipped to handle elders aged 65 years and above suffering from physical and functional limitations due to geriatric conditions such as dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophy or previous stroke with debilitating disabilities. The clinic is specially equipped to treat patients with mobility issues, including those who are bed-bound or wheelchair-bound. This includes special needs patients; patients who require closer dental monitoring after receiving head and neck radiation therapy; and medically-compromised patients requiring dental assessment and clearance prior to medical treatment.
