SINGAPORE - Recently, I called Tampines Polyclinic to make a dental appointment.
However, I was told that the next available date was in March next year.
This nine-month wait for subsidised dental care is ridiculous.
Thankfully, the services which I require are just a routine check-up and cleaning.
My heart goes out to Singaporeans who require urgent dental procedures but cannot afford private dental treatment.
May I ask the Ministry of Health what is being done to improve the current standards?
