T32 Dental Centre, one of Singapore’s biggest private dental centres, and Arrail Dental Group have announced a strategic partnership that will create a union of dental network in Asia.
Arrail Dental Group is one of the largest private dental groups in China. The collaboration between the two parties is the first of its kind for dentistry in Asia and promises to offer patients the best technology, services, value and specialisation through the cross-sharing of expertise, training and resources.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with a well-established and respected dental group such as Arrail,” said Dr Wong Keng Mun, managing director of T32 Dental Centre and chairman of the International Dental Academy.
“This is the first of its kind partnership in Asia, and we are very excited to be in the forefront to bring the best services, value and overall peace of mind to our customers wherever in Asia they may be.
“The combination of quality service and extensive reach is an extra benefit we want to deliver. We have even established a dental Internet portal for the consultation of cases that allow T32 and Arrail to share expertise and experience to offer the best level of dental services regardless of location.”
Mr Robert Zou, president and chief executive officer of Arrail Dental Group China, added: “We are extremely excited at the prospect of partnering with T32, we feel this collaboration will offer benefits to both dentists and patients across China and Singapore.”
The partnership also benefits dentists as Arrail dental staff will be able to train at T32’s International Dental Academy facility, while utilising Arrail facilities as a platform to conduct advanced continuing dental education throughout China. An exchange programme will also be established for those dentists wishing to visit partner dental clinics, in line with the government’s proposed Dental Accreditation Scheme to further establish Singapore as a dental training hub for professionals across Asia.
“The field of dentistry is constantly evolving and advancing. It is therefore extremely important to stay abreast of new techniques and technology, to ensure you are able to offer your patients the best possible care available. By collaborating with T32, Arrail will be ale to receive the most up-to-date training and more importantly, a two-way exchange of experience, expertise and ideas will be opened between T32 and Arrail,” said Mr Zou.
Associate Professor Patrick Tseng, Chief Dental Officer for the Ministry of Health, Singapore, said: “At the Ministry of Health we are continually looking to advance the state of dental health and care in Singapore, which I feel relies on our ability to provide quality dental care that is readily accessible and affordable. The collaboration between T32 Dental Centre and Arrail Dental Group is definitely a step in the right direction. Forging strong relationships and sharing expertise and resources will strengthen Singapore’s position as a dental training hub and expose more patients to the best technology, services and benefits of specialisation.”
“At T32 we realise we need to cater to the overall growing demand for dental healthcare across Asia. It is for this reason that we have established the International Dental Academy. Through our training academy we hope to share our expertise and knowledge beyond Singapore. Asia is fast becoming a strong medical and dental hub and we at T32 hope to contribute to this growing capability,” said Dr Wong.
Arrail Dental Group is one of the pioneers in China’s private dental service market. The group currently has over 110 dentists and operates 11 clinics with 118 treatment suites in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen.
