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.

Had a tooth implant done by Dr Teo and that tooth is solid as a rock. It can be a scary process doing but Dr Teo made it a breeze with her steadiness. I don't hope for anymore tooth implants to be done, but if i have to, i'd head back to Dr Teo for sure.

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.

Thanks very very much Dr Marlene you are absolutely the best Dentist, I have had honour to work with; bar none! You have made my fear of sitting on the dental chair a nightmare of the pass, she makes me feel relax and comfortable at all times even when it is a major implant job. Thanks once again Dr Marlene.

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!
