Who we are

The Singapore Dental Council is the self-regulatory body for the dental professions constituted under the Dental Registration Act 1999. Its key objectives are to promote high standards of oral health and to promote the interests of the dental profession in Singapore.

The SDC logo embraces a serpent that entwines onto the Rod of Asclepius, which represents healing. Posturing over the Singapore map, it signifies the Council's oversight to safe-guard the ethos of dentistry for Singaporeans as governed by the dual nature of the work of the dentist, i.e. professional interest, ethics, conduct and patient safety.

What is “Secretariat of healthcare Professional Boards”?

With effect from 1 Jan 2020, the Singapore Dental Council (SDC) is supported by the Secretariat of healthcare Professional Boards (SPB) for its secretariat and operational functions. The registration and regulation of dental practitioners including dentists, specialist dentists, oral health therapists, continue to be governed by SDC, which retains autonomy and independence over professional and statutory matters, as provided for under the Dental Registration Act 1999.
