Do You Know That You Can Use Your Medisave for Certain Dental Treatments?
All our clinics are Medisave-accredited by the Ministry of Health (MOH), which means you can use your Medisave account to pay for selected dental treatments. For wisdom teeth surgery and surgical removal of teeth, it is 100% claimable by Medisave. This means there is no need for any cash top-up from your pocket. For implant surgery to replace your missing teeth and bone grafting procedure before implant placement, you can use your Medisave to pay a partial portion of the full treatment cost.
All you need is to provide a photocopy of your NRIC, ensure that you have sufficient balance in your medisave account and sign off the relevant forms. We will do the rest for you with no administrative charge. It’s just the same as you would use your Medisave account for any payment of your medical treatment in any private or government hosiptal.
If you do not have sufficient balance in your medisave account or you do not have a medisave account, you may also use the medisave accounts of your immediate family members too (spouse, parents, siblings or children).
If you have further questions, please feel free to call any of our clinics or email us at [email protected].
What are the treatments that can be paid using my Medisave?
Only surgical procedures such as minor oral surgery, wisdom tooth surgery and implant surgery can be paid using your Medisave. For minor oral surgery and wisdom tooth surgery, the treatments are fully payable by Medisave. For implant surgery, the maximum deduction from your Medisave account is $1250 for the first implant and any additional implant is $950 each. Bone grafting procedure is a Medisave claimable surgical procedure if it is done without the placement of the implant on the same day.
Can I use Medisave to pay for braces/dentures/crown/root canal treatments?
No. Medisave can only be used to pay for surgical procedures such as minor oral surgery, wisdom tooth surgery and implant surgery.
Can I use Medisave to pay for common dental treatment like scaling, filling and extraction?
No. Medisave cannot be use for common dental treatment. However if the extraction of a tooth becomes complicated as due to certain clinical situation like example the tooth broke during extraction, thus making normal extraction impossible. This may need a minor surgery to remove the broken tooth, which is then Medisave claimable because removal of tooth with surgery (involving cutting of bone and the broken tooth fragment) fall under the approved dental treatment.

Yes, you can.

Do I need to pay any adminstrative fee for the processing of Medisave?
No, you do not. This is a value-added service we provide to all our patients at no extra cost.
I am not able to prove my medisave account balance. Can I still receive the dental treatment using my medisave?
Our dentist will render the treatment but you will need to pay first by cash. At the same time, we will process for your Medisave payment. Once the Medisave payment is successfully processed, we will refund you the initial cash amount that you paid. Do note that this whole process might take up to a period of 3 to 4 months.
