Dental chain Q&M has opened its first free dental clinic for underprivileged residents in Chai Chee.

Specifically, it is open to residents from rental blocks as well as those under government financial assistance.

Located at Block 26 Chai Chee Road, the free clinic provides basic dental treatments like dental checkups, scaling and polishing, fillings, and extractions.

The clinic is staffed by 50 volunteer dentists from Q&M Dental Group. It can serve up to 1,400 patients a year.

With the help of donors, Q&M Dental Group is aiming to ramp up capacity to serve up to 5,000 patients per year in its next phase.

Currently, the clinic only accepts patients through appointments, referred by the Kembangan-Chai Chee Division of the People’s Association.

The clinic does not see walk-in cases.
