Dear Patients, Family and Friends,

We have some great news to share!  Effective from October 1st 2022,  Coast Dental did a merger with DP Dental group!  We will be operating our new clinic under the name of DP Coast at 451 Joo Chiat Road #02-01/03, Katong Point (above Little Farms) from March 4th 2023.

My wife Shaheeda and I started Coast Dental in 2014. Prior to that I had worked in the government service and several reputable private clinics for about 7 years.  Interestingly, the first dental private practice I had worked with was DP Dental Pte Ltd where I worked for about two and a half years.

Shaheeda and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our patients for your continual support and trust in our clinic.  We started the clinic in 2014 in a humble shophouse. We had to slowly build our reputation and branding.  With hard work and dedication, we expanded the clinic in 2017 to incorporate Myofunctional Therapy for children at Coast Kids.  Our clinic also invested in several high technology equipments during the COVID pandemic and the clinic has thrived since as we slowly navigate beyond the pandemic.

Now the next level of expansion is to consolidate our resources with a highly reputable group such as DP Dental to leverage on their expertise, human resource and management capabilities.

This will enable us to provide an even higher level of dental care.   DP Dental group has also  invested in several other initiatives to provide holistic dental care and whole body wellness.

DP Healthverse is an ecosystem of companies that have been formed by DP Dental to focus on whole body wellness.  This ecosystem comprises of

  1. i) Avantir Wellness - A state of the art wellness facility where whole body rejuvenation can take place.
  2. ii) DP Academy which focuses on learning the latest dental techniques and leveraging on technology to provide the highest level of dental care
  3. iii) Progressive Practice which facilitates the procurement of the very best dental materials and equipment from around the world.
  4. iv) DP Dental @Kovan and DP Dental @Orchard - Centres for advanced dentistry

As such it is my pleasure to embark on this exciting journey with Dr Yue Weng Cheu and his wife Louisa Lee who are the directors of DP Healthverse and DP Dental group to form DP Coast.  Together  we will continue to strive to provide dental excellence to all our patients.  Looking forward to seeing you at DP Coast!
