Nurturing Dental Health right from the start
As corporate citizen, we believe in supporting the community and nurturing the next generation through our T32 Junior Oral Health Programme, which is targeted at educating pre-schoolers on the importance of dental health. We regularly conduct school excursions and orientations for pre-schoolers to visit our centres to get them comfortable with a dental health environment.

The Healthy Smile Series (By Dr Lim Swee Teck and Mascot Timmy)
Authored by T32’s in-house pedodontist, Dr Lim Swee Teck, The Healthy Smile Series is a set of 12 books that aims to prepare children for their dental visits. The first book of the series, is especially enlightening as it helps ease children into their very first dental experience in a positive light. Lively and educational, these stories not only help children acquire good oral health habits, it also helps to build their confidence and eliminate their fear of seeing dentists and going for dental treatment.
From this series, Timmy the Mascot is created to further engage children during our roadshows and events for kids.
