Wondering how to choose the best Invisalign Singapore clinic? You’ve come to the right place.
I underwent Invisalign treatment myself over a decade ago. As a pimply army boy, I was ultra conscious about wearing a metal tray in my mouth. Back then, Invisalign in Singapore was still relatively new, which made the selection process a whole lot easier (there were only 3 or 4 Invisalign clinics to choose from).
There’s now a glut of dental clinics in Singapore offering Invisalign. Beyond comparing based on Invisalign costs in Singapore, I’d sympathise if you had no clue where to start with your search for the best Invisalign clinic.
“Ahhh, you may question. Isn’t Invisalign just an exercise in 3D simulation, with the software doing everything based on moulds of your teeth? If this geek can print out his own Invisalign retainers with a 3D printer at home, surely any dentist running the Invisalign software should produce identical results.”
We address that question, and more, in our upcoming post about 6 questions about Invisalign you were to afraid to ask an Orthodontist. Otherwise, read on to find out about the 7 best Invisalign Singapore clinics.
These 7 dental clinics are also highly recommended for all forms of braces treatment, as they comprise entirely of orthodontists (braces specialists). All clinics were contacted for comment, prior to writing this post. We are unaffiliated to any of them.
*Platinum Elite Invisalign status is awarded by Invisalign to clinics with vast Invisalign experience, based on number of patients treated.
Best Invisalign Singapore clinic credentials: Platinum Elite Invisalign Provider, down to earth, friendly, good rapport, pioneers with Invisalign.
Address: 1 Harbourfront Walk #02-230 VivoCity Singapore 098585
Phone: 6376 9001
Dental On The Bay was the Invisalign clinic I found all those year ago. I paid a total of $8000 for my full treatment. As you’d expect, they’re very experienced with Invisalign, being one of the first few Invisalign providers in Singapore.
Dr Eugene Chan was the orthodontist who treated me then. A key opinion leader in the field of Invisible Aligner Systems, he was the very first Invisalign Platinum Elite Provider in Asia. He’s also highly regarded within the dentistry and orthodontics circles.
Dr Chan has an easy-going and affable nature – clinic visits are akin to catching up with an old friend. It’s probably what prompted my mom to return to him for Invisalign treatment soon after myself.
One disadvantage is that Dr Chan spends a fair amount of his time in Australia (he concurrently runs a dental clinic in Sydney). This means that you’ve got to squeeze follow-up appointments into limited slots whenever he’s back in Singapore.
Best Invisalign Singapore clinic credentials: Small practice with patient-oriented service, personal touch, latest Invisalign technology, NUS lecturer.

Budding orthodontists use their annual leave just to shadow Dr Geraldine Lee. Although she depreciatingly attributes it to her chatty nature preventing them from falling asleep, it’s clearly testament to her skills and knowledge that they use their free time to learn from her.
Dr Lee serves as President of the Association of Orthodontists (Singapore), and is well known amongst dentists as clinical lecturer to the NUS Postgraduate Orthodontic programme. She has a reputation for treating high profile clients within the media industries – Celebs are drawn to her meticulous and careful treatment planning, as well as her charismatic and friendly nature.
At The Orthodontic Clinic, patients starting on Invisalign treatment are able to have their teeth scanned by an intraoral scanner. This eliminates the need for uncomfortable teeth impressions, and also allows you to receive your Invisalign aligners quicker.
One caveat: The Orthodontic Clinic can get rather busy as it’s small scale (only 2 dentists) and geared towards offering patients a personal touch. Dr Lee herself is so popular that she frequently has to “run multiple chairs” – This means that the clinic has spare rooms for patients to be prepared right before seeing her.
I was duly informed by my dental colleagues that because her clinic is so busy, it really doesn’t need any extra publicity. However, because this post highlights all the best Invisalign clinics in Singapore, we couldn’t avoid mentioning The Orthodontic Clinic (even if we inadvertently send more work her way!)
Best Invisalign Singapore clinic credentials: Platinum Elite Invisalign Provider, large team and fast cross-referrals, state of the art technology, customised treatment plans, NUS lecturers.

As a doctor myself, I’m most impressed that TP Dental somehow manages to house 25 dentists, a large amount of high tech equipment and laboratory under the same roof.
There’s a clear advantage to having such a large team based on-site for your Invisalign treatment – From scheduling follow-up treatment at your convenience, to rapid cross referrals during the course of your Invisalign treatment (eg. with X-Rays, teeth whitening, wisdom tooth extraction) – everything can be instantly arranged for at TP Dental. This saves you precious time, and shortens the whole Invisalign treatment process.
Dr Hwang Yee Cheau and Dr Tony Tng Thiam Huat were the 2 orthodontists recommended by fellow colleagues for Invisalign and braces treatment. There’re a total of 4 orthodontists who work at TP Dental, including Dr Marina Teh and Dr Sylvia Tan.
Dr Hwang teaches orthodontics to the postgraduates at National University of Singapore. A perfectionist in her own right, she’s known to customize every single Invisalign treatment plan. As her care is modified according to individual patients’ needs, you can be assured of getting the best treatment outcomes. Dr Hwang also sits on the Asia Pacific Invisalign board, meaning that she’s always kept abreast with the latest Invisalign news.
Dr Meow’s orthodontist colleague had her own Invisalign fitted by Dr Tng. She was very pleased with the results, and spoke highly of Dr Tng’s reassuring nature and attention to details.
Where technology is concerned, TP Dental also have the most up-to-date technology from Invisalign. The machine is able to scan and instantly send a 3D reconstruction of your teeth to Invisalign, which saves you a lot of time. (For my previous Invisalign treatment, the clinic had to manually take teeth impressions, and then send it to the USA by snail mail!)
Best Invisalign Singapore clinic credentials: NUS lecturer, impeccable service staff.
Address: 12 Gopen St #01-73 Icon Village Singapore 078877

This clinic serves a predominantly Japanese clientele, which means that all the staff here are able to speak Japanese and English.
The service staff at Ko Djeng Dental Centre are well known for their impeccable service standards, which is no surprise as they are mostly Japanese.
The orthodontist who came highly recommended by our colleagues for Invisalign and braces treatment is Dr Ong Hoe Boon. He’s currently an Adjunct Senior Lecturer at NUS, and has taught in the undergraduate and postgraduate orthodontic programmes since 2002.

RCOLL Dental Clinic has been established since 1961, and pride themselves in building long-standing relationships with all their patients. Between the 4 dentists who work at the clinic, they have over 50 years of clinical expertise and specialist knowledge in dentistry.
The orthodontist who performs Invisalign treatment, Dr Johanna Choo, tutors the postgraduates at both NUS and the National Dental Centre. She’s also on the committee which deals with Specialist Accreditation of Orthodontists in Singapore
Dr Choo is extremely popular with her patients, but only practises part time at RCOLL Dental Clinic. So once again, it may be tricky booking yourself in to see her for your Invisalign treatment.
Best Invisalign Singapore clinic credentials: Care-oriented approach, paediatric patients, state of the art scanner, NUS lecturer.
Address: 290 Orchard Road, #11-11/12 Paragon, Paragon, Singapore 238859

Smileworks believes in providing patients with the best care possible, and continually look towards improving their practice. They are well known for working with paediatric patients, aiming to make each visit as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
Dr Geraldine Oh is the orthodontist who performs Invisalign within the practice. Just in case you haven’t noticed the trend by now, she also lectures the postgraduates in orthodontics at the NUS.
The clinic benefits from the latest 3Shape intraoral scanner, which allows 3D images to be electronically ported directly to Invisalign. This significantly reduces the waiting time of patients before starting with their Invisalign treatment.
Best Invisalign Singapore clinic credentials: NUS lecturer, experience, complex cases.
Address: 3 Killiney Road, Winsland House 1, #09-01, Singapore 239519

Aesthetics Dental Surgery places patients’ safety and well-being above all else. They also spare no expense in ensuring that all their patients enjoy dental treatment in a friendly and cozy environment. Most of their patients are family and friends of previous satisfied patients.
Dr Tan Hwee Hiang has over 30 years of experience in orthodontics, and is the dentist providing Invisalign treatment at the clinic. She tutors the post graduates in the National University of Singapore.
Dr Tan was one of the first names that Dr Meow’s colleagues brought up for braces and Invisalign treatment. Besides being one of the pioneers with Invisalign, she also has vast experience with orthodontic work, and regularly sees complex orthodontics cases.
I hope that you found this round-up of the best Invisalign clinics in Singapore helpful. Do note that we exclusively covered orthodontics clinics in this post, and so any of the 7 mentioned clinics would also be our go-to choice for braces treatment. Many thanks to all our dentist and orthodontic colleagues who provided their valuable input!
