‘Your smile is important. It’s the way you communicate your joy to the world.’
– Dr. Surinder Arora
Dr. Surinder Arora qualified with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) degree in the UK and and has passed the MFDS examination with the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh. She is a Board Certified Biological Dentist, accredited by The International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine (IABDM) and is SMART certified by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), offering this service for mercury amalgam fillings. She has also undergone further training in nutrition with the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM). She is excellent at managing anxious and nervous patients restoring confidence to individuals and is trained in IV sedation with the Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia (SAAD).
She carries out dental procedures including periodontal (gum) care, pain management, restoring broken teeth with BPA free materials, removal (extraction) of teeth, managing sleep apnoea, Invisalign and myofunctional therapy. She also places ceramic crowns, removes wisdom teeth and was trained at the National University Singapore to place dental implants. Dr. Arora is trained in ozone therapy and uses PRF (platelet rich fibrin) and mineral bone grafting to optimise healing after surgical procedures. She is the only provider in Singapore of the Homeoblock and POD oral devices for better breathing and airway development.
Her journey into taking a biological and holistic approach to healthcare started outside the clinic as she began to explore the effects of meditation and nutrition on health. Her role as a dentist is now all about putting the mouth back into the body. She sees dentistry as both an art and a science and places you as a whole person at the centre of her care. She firmly believes that your oral condition is a true reflection of your overall well-being. Her passion and dedication to her role is fuelled by a wish for you to simply have a confident and healthy smile. Understanding the mouth-body and mind-body connection are essential pieces on the journey to optimum oral health.
Dr. Arora is the past Vice President of the Singapore Dental Association’s Oral Health Awareness Committee and she volunteers her time to the Singapore Dental Ethics and Welfare committees. Out of the clinic, Dr. Arora is a health coach, reiki master, and teaches Kundalini Yoga. She also writes for various publishers and has a Master’s degree in Public Health from King’s College London with an aim of improving the quality of life of the nation by taking a lifestyle and whole person approach to dental and health care.
