Q & M Dental Group - Price Breakdown for Wisdom Tooth Surgery was not Transparent
I am writing to complaint about the transparency of the wisdom tooth surgical procedure I have undergone on 25 October 2021. When I initially entered the clinic, I asked the receptionist about the cost for the procedure. She told me she was not sure herself and directed me to ask the dentist later when I meet with her. When it was time for me to meet the dentist, I again asked her how much would the cost of procedure be, and she told me that the cost of the surgical procedure would be $340 per tooth, and there would additional fees for the medication. In total, it would be around $400 but should not be too much. I was okay with that and went on with the procedure. After the procedure, at the reception area, I asked the receptionist again how much would exact the total cost be, and she asked me if I had at least $2000 in my Medisave (as I am paying with Medisave) and if I did then that would be sufficient. I asked for a receipt and she told me I will receive a text message instead when my Medisave is deducted and I could see the cost of the procedure there. Days later when I checked my Medisave account, I was shocked to see the whole procedure cost me $540, which was higher than what I expected. I am very disappointed with the way the staff handled my questions of cost and how the procedure turns out to be way higher than what they told me.
Desired outcome: A refund of the difference between what was quoted to me and what was eventually deducted from my account.

Q & M Dental Group - Service
I would like to report something that happened to me in Q&M clinic recently.
I went to Q&M Kovan Dental Clinic on 28th May to check my teeth. The person at the reception counter recommended that me to wash my teeth so I don' t have to pay for the consultation fee, so I agreed. While washing my tooth, the dentist washed off two of my teeth crowns on the right down side. ( The two crowns were still fine but they dropped them off while washing.) She then fixed it back but charged me for 400 dollars for doing this fixing progress.
They told me they did some filling for me, but I felt it was part of their responsibility. At that time, I didn't want to argue.
The second time, my left down wise tooth was decayed, they recommend me to remove it. I went to the Kovan Q&M clinic again on 24th May. They removed the wise tooth for me. I got a bad fever the next day and during the process of removing my wise teeth they destroyed part of my crown next to the wise teeth. They charged me around 40 dollars for doing filling to fix the hole on the crown. But they made my crown fall apart while removing my wise teeth in the first place.
But after another two week, the filing dropped apart one more time, and the hole was bigger. They told me I need to redo the crown. I wanted my teeth to get back to normal quickly, so I had to agree to do it in their clinic again.
They told me they need to charge 900sgd (exclude gst) after gst 1001.75 sgd. I need to do the crown for two visits. So I did one visit in the week before last week, they charged me for half of the price which is around 500 sgd. They removed my original crown, collected the shape of the crown and made a temporary crown for me. During the days I was waiting for the new crown, the temporary crown broke while I was chewing something not even hard. I called them, they said I should do nothing and wait for the new crown to be ready.
As I went back to the clinic few days ago. They checked my teeth again and told me my filling is falling more and I need to redo the crown. They need to charge me extra! I feel most of the responsibilities should be taken by them. They broke my crown while they removed my wise teeth, they made a very weak temporary crown for me and let me wait for almost two weeks. Then they want to charge me more! I feel this whole situation happening is quite unreasonable.
Desired outcome: A reasonable solution & refund
Q & M Dental Group - Poor and inexperience
My wife went for a wisdom tooth extraction 2 years ago. The process was badly done and left her with numbness on the underside of her tongue. Advise her to be on neurobion and she has been taking till now but the condition remains.
We do understand that these do happen but just want to say that they are not experience and professional to take on such surgeries.
There are better ones and we should avoid this dental.
Thank you for your feedback.
Please allow us to express our sincere apologies for the unhappy experience your wife had at our clinic. Please write to us at [email protected] with the details of the incident, your wife's full name and last 4 alphanumeric characters of her ID number, we will commence investigation and strive to improve our service in future.
Q & M Dental Group - Lack of miscommunication, extra steps for nothing
Had a horrible visit in Pasir Ris White Sands. What I thought was a normal visit for scaling and polishing turns into an nightmare.
During the treatment, the Dr said that I have gum problems & suggest that I treat my wisdom tooth immediately as they are shown deep rooted in my nerves. He then proceed to arrange an X-ray for me.
Upon reviving the results, he said I have to go for an CT scan in Simei to have a clearer picture on which nerves is closest and he would check my CT scan to see if hes able to do that surgery for me. He told me to get it done ASAP as my wisdom tooth is decaying.
Of course, I was worried so I went Simei the next few days. CT scan costs me about $200 and when I'm done I called Pasir Ris branch to confirm my next appointment with doc. TO MY HORROR, the receptionist (different from the one who advise me to book CT scan) said "don't need to come back, doc already said he cannot do surgery for you" I WAS SO PISSED. I went back to the Simei Branch and asked what was the miscommunication about.
If PSR branch have told me earlier that they can't perform this surgery, I would've went to Simei and get it done WITHOUT the need of CT scan (scam much?) Long story short, the receptionist at the Simei branch was surprised and mad as well, she apologised for the miscomm & offered me to do my surgery the next day since I'm in a lot of pain.
The reason why I want to go back to psr is because of the cost, if I did it in Simei it will be abt 2400+ as its specialist surgeon, Psr branch will be about 1250+ for normal surgeon.
Anyway, I decided to ditch QM for good and went to other dental and finally had my wisdom removal painless & efficiently.
Till this date, QM still msg-Ed me to ask me to book appointment even tho their doctor can't perform my surgery. My advise to them is to put themselves in check and Communicate with their patients.
Thank you for your feedback.
