You have most likely been referred to us by your trusted family dentist for the specialist services we offer. At our facility, we practice only within the limits of our three specialisations.
We do not practice general dentistry such as crowns and fillings, which are the work of your family/referring dentist. Your dentist will brief us on the specifics of your individual case. and any needs which require our particular expertise. We will work closely with your family dentist to formulate an individual treatment plan and explain the long term outcome of available options.
Each of the practitioners at Dental Specialists Group has trained in the USA and is accredited as Specialist by the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine and the Dental Council of Hong Kong.
