Dr Ariel Guo
BChD (University of Leeds, United Kingdom)
Dr Ariel Guo graduated from the University of Leeds (UK) in 2018 and spent a year working in East Yorkshire providing general dentistry services under the National Health Service of England. During that year, she took up the opportunity to volunteer with Dentaid, providing emergency dental treatment for communities facing difficulties with dental access in UK, and Teethteam, providing free dental screening for school children in the Yorkshire region.
She has a passion for endodontics and restorative dentistry and looks to volunteer more with local outreach organisations. She also believes in the importance of patient education and loves involving patients in their journeys to achieving a healthy mouth!
In her free time, Dr Ariel enjoys keeping her hands busy with handicrafts like embroidery or baking cakes (with reduced sugar of course!). She also has a soft spot for anything furry and enjoys spending the weekends with the family dogs, teaching them a new trick or two. It’s no wonder that her favourite place in Singapore is the Singapore Zoo, where she spent a couple of months working as a zookeeper before university and still makes it a point to visit the attraction at least once a year even till today!
Dr David Lee
BDS (University of Glasgow, United Kingdom)
Dr David Lee graduated from the University of Glasgow, UK, with a Bachelor in Dental Surgery. He has worked in the urban and suburban environments of Glasgow treating patients of different social backgrounds and age groups.
Prior to joining private practice, Dr David has served as a Dental Officer in Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, National Dental Centre of Singapore, as well as Changi General Hospital. During his stint with the public service, Dr Lee has provided emergency dental services, and worked alongside medical colleagues for the overall care of patients, often debunking the misconception that dental health has no link to general health. He has also provided a wide range of treatment from periodontal and root canal treatment, to crowns and dentures.
