Done an implant with Dr. Marlene, it was so well done that I even asked her on my next visit to remind me if she had inserted the screw. She did, and I did not feel any discomfort during/after the surgery that I have totally forgotten about it. Thanks Dr. Marlene!

I have very high expectations from my health professionals and Marlene exceeded all of those. She is kind and gentle, she makes you feel comfortable in her presence. She provides sound advice because she cares for people in a holistic manner. I go to her as a patient and highly recommend her to others too.

I had been to many dentists but my gum bleeding issue still persist. After visiting Dr Marlene, I managed to get my gum bleeding issue solved. She is also very gentle and skilful in handling the cleaning process.

Dr Marlene Teo is the best periodontist I know. Her detailed observation and diagnosis is very accurate and her warm personality always calms any nervousness that I have whenever I visit a dentist!. One last thing, her injection is not painful unlike what I had with most other dentists. She is simply the best!

If you have missing teeth and are embarrassed by the need to wear a removable denture, then a dental implant is a periodontal treatment made for you. It can be placed in a way that it appears natural and harmonious with your natural teeth.
If you have tender or bleeding gums, pus from gums, persistent bad breath, and gum recession, you may be showing the signs and symptoms of gum disease. If you don’t see a gum specialist in Singapore, it will lead to gum loss, shaky teeth, and eventual tooth loss.
A wonderful smile makes a lasting impression. It is not just the colour of your teeth that makes a great smile. Tooth length, which are affected by your gums, is just as important in designing the perfect smile for you. See a periodontist in Singapore as soon as possible.
