Happy Saturday! I do apologise for the lack of updates last week as I was on vacation in Phuket. Will be blogging about my trip there soon!
Now, many of you have asked me where do I get my Invisalign done. And many are not aware that you are actually get them done in Johor Bahru itself, instead of having to travel to KL or Singapore. Saves so much time!
I am getting my treatment done at Q&M Dental Surgery, Taman Molek. It is the headquarters of the chain of Q&M Dental Clinics in JB. It is located in the same row as Lavendar Bistro Molek, in case you're wondering. They are awarded the Best Dental Clinic of the Year 2014/2015 and I'm not surprised! My clinic is part of the Q&M Dental Group and they are one of the largest private dental healthcare group in Singapore. A quick search on their Facebook page, I fond that they actually already have 15 years of experience, after the first establishment back in 1996. In 2010, !&M Dental Group ventured into Malaysia, with 4 other clinics in Johor Bahru now (Nusa Bestari, Taman Mount Austin & Bukit Indah), 2 clinics in Selangor and one more in KL. A few of my friends living in Singapore have told me that I am really lucky to receive treatment from Q&M as they are one of the most reputable dental clinics there is!
Upon stepping into the clinic, you are greeted with a clean, open space. No-shoes allowed, which is why the place feels cleaner and more homely to me. If not mistaken, there are about 3 orthodontists and 6 nurses in the clinic.
Wall of Fame - I'm impressed with all the certificates my orthodontist has :O FYI, Dr Matthew Hong practiced in Singapore previously. He has 15 years of experience in treating Invisalign patients and has experiences in other kinds of dental services as well.
The first thing I saw when I arrived is this interesting machine. Zoe, the GM of Q&M JB, explained that it is actually a machine that makes ceramic crowns for aesthetic purposes. Crowns as in teeth lah XD And yes, besides Invisalign, Q&M Dental Surgery also offers CEREC technology for inlays, onlays, veneers and crowns. The crowning process usually takes more than 24 hours but with this machine, they are able to manufacture the crowns in one appointment.
So many high-tech machines in the place and probably more that I've yet to discover. This is the X-ray used to take shots of your teeth. If you have not read about my first consultation and encounter with this X-ray, read it HERE!
Showing you this because Dr Matthew is going to do whitening for my teeth as well after the whole Invisalign treatment and I am so excited!
One of the coolest things about my dental clinic is the fact that my orthodontist's wife and the clinic's GM is the winner of Mrs Malaysia Universe 2015! I was wondering at first why is there a pageant poster in the clinic and now I know. XD
Zoe is not only gorgeous but extremely friendly and passionate about the things she does as well. It's always nice chatting with her whenever I go for my checkups!
The staff and nurses are extremely friendly and helpful. I frequently see updates of them doing community service at old folks' home or kindergartens to increase awareness for dental care. With their mission and vision to provide quality & accessible dental healthcare, I'd say they are doing it right.
PS: As I'm writing this, the clinic just called me to inform me that my aligners are ready!! I can't wait to go get them tomorrow! :D:D:D
UPDATE: I got my aligners woohoo! Read all about it HERE!
