Dr Liu Yuchun

Junior Principal Investigator,
Academic Clinical Programme Office,
National Dental Centre Singapore

Dr Liu's passion lies in clinical needs discovery, engineering innovative and practical solutions in the area of dentistry. She enjoys doing the ground-work and finding insights through talking to more people, understanding their needs and challenges, and seeing how these different perspectives shape the way the innovation will eventually be designed. She finds great joy in getting her hands dirty during prototype design and engineering, and is a firm believer that “there is no failure, only feedback”. Through her research work, she hope to create impactful value-driven dental medtech innovations that can bring about improved oral healthcare standards to people.
