CGDP celebrated our 10th Anniversary of Basic Comprehensive Orthodontic Course in Singapore together with FDC Academy and Dr Kenneth Lew on 15 April 2017. Miss Jane Fonda, CEO of Fondaco Singapore and her team at FDC Academy, planned a fantastic party where we gathered to celebrate this tremendous achievement and landmark of providing quality orthodontic education in Singapore.
“…at the national level there is a need to provide training to our general dental practitioners to update and upgrade their skills and knowledge and for them to understand and appreciate their limitations so that they can provide safe, and affordable care and refer appropriately…a good working knowledge of orthodontics is certainly one of them.
…it is good that general dental practitioners can provide some level of orthodontic care to the public. This ensures that basic orthodontic treatment remains affordable and accessible to as many in our country as possible.”

Our Chief Dental Officer, A/Prof Patrick Tseng joined us as our Guest-of-Honour. He has been instrumental in supporting our vision of organising orthodontic training for general dental practitioners in order to provide quality and affordable orthodontic therapy to a wider patient population in Singapore. It has been an honour and fantastic milestone with many General Dental Practitioners trained in Orthodontics. This would not have been possible without the support from all of our past and present participants.
We look forward that more of you to join us in our future celebrations!
