Dr Delwin Koh graduated from National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery. After his graduation, he served the public healthcare sector in National Healthcare Group Polyclinics, where he treated patients of a wide variety of ages and backgrounds. He also worked as a Dental Officer in the Singapore Armed Forces, attending to the dental needs of our soldiers.
Dr Delwin believes that prevention is better than cure, and would like to help his patients solve their dental issues before they become more complex. He hopes to provide individualised care to each of his patients, and welcome them with a pleasant visit every time.
Dr Delwin looks to constantly attend local and overseas conferences, workshops, and courses, as he aims to keep himself updated with the latest knowledge, to care for his patients better.
Dentistry beyond the clinics
Dr Delwin started his journey of volunteer work back when he was a student, where he helped out in multiple healthcare screenings and projects. During the initial phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, he also went to various dormitories to help with swabbing operations.
His first overseas mission trip was during his undergraduate days, where he went to Cambodia as part of Project Sabai. He has since gone back to various parts of Cambodia as a dentist, and provided fillings and extractions for the locals.

Getting to know our Dentist
What are the things that keep you motivated in dentistry?
Helping patients solve their dental problems like relieving their toothache, or replacing a dislodged filling. Words of appreciation and feedback keeps me going, and affirms the standard of care that we hold ourselves to.
Over time, new patients become familiar faces, and it is satisfying to see the role I had in helping them improve their function and aesthetics, and the trust they have in us shows through their return visits.
What do patients know you for?
Listening to their concerns and providing suitable options for them.
What are your favourite dental treatments, and why?
Wisdom tooth surgery! It is like a reverse jigsaw puzzle which is challenging and satisfying to perform. I am also more assured that patients will not get problems in that area due to their impacted wisdom teeth, which are generally more difficult to brush.
What are your hobbies?
I enjoy being surrounded in nature and try to keep fit at the same time, by going for hikes in our nature reserves. I have recently picked up playing chess!
What is one advice you want to give to patients?
Getting checked for any problems earlier is always better than leaving it for another day!
