Smiles For Miles
Global Dental Specialist Clinic (GDSC) is strategically located at the Mont Kiara, next to the Gardens International School. The clinic is specially designed to provide patient with the most pleasant experience. We take pride in providing the best quality of treatment possible to our patients. We also use modern techniques, high quality materials and first class laboratories in providing treatments to give you a smile to be proud of.
Like your body, your teeth need regular maintenance. Regular checkups go a long way in keeping your smile flawless at all times.
We recommend a check up every 6 months to ensure an optimum oral state. General Dentistry involves:
- Professional scaling and polishing
- Gum disease
- Dental filling
- Tooth extraction
A perfect smile is created by well aligned teeth and projected with confidence. However, more often than not, the smile is usually affected by misaligned teeth due to chipped, crooked or stained teeth.
If you desire a beautiful smile, our dentist will discuss the treatment options that suit you best, without compromising your comfort and quality of life.
Aesthetic Dentistry can help address your concerns on stained, damaged or crooked teeth, with treatment options as below:
- Teeth Whitening
- Orthodontic Treatment

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is surgery to treat many diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the oral (mouth) and maxillofacial (jaws and face) region. It is an internationally recognised surgical specialty.

Several medications are available to help create more relaxed, comfortable dental visits. The type of procedure, your overall health, history of allergies and your anxiety level are considered when determining which approach is best for your particular case.
For some dental visits, our dentist may use a sedative, which can induce moderate sedation. Sedatives can be administered before or during dental procedures. Sedation methods that are available at GDSC include:
- oral (by taking a pill)
- inhalation (using nitrous oxide),
- intravenous (by injection)
More complex treatments may require drugs that can induce deep sedation, reducing consciousness. On occasion, general anesthesia can be used, in which drugs cause a temporary loss of consciousness in order to relieve both pain and anxiety.
We also have the facilities for general anaesthesia for cases such as:-
- Dental phobic patient (adult and children )
- Children with rampant caries
- Children with special needs
- Removal of wisdom teeth
- Dental implant surgeries
- Other oral surgeries that require daycare facilities
Dental X-rays are a useful diagnostic tool in helping our dentist detects damage and disease not visible during a regular dental exam. If you are a new patient, our dentist may recommend X-rays to determine the present status of your oral health and have a baseline to help identify changes that may occur later.
A new set of X-rays may be needed to help our dentist detect any new cavities, determine the status of your gum health or evaluate the growth and development of your teeth. At GDSC, we have state of the art digital imaging panoramic machine Sirona Orthophos XG 5. It is able to provide digital Panoramic, Lateral Cephalic and TMJ views.
We also have Sirona digital intra oral radiograph which uses a sensor instead of photographic (film) imaging for more precise and accurate views of the teeth. Digital radiographic imaging is preferred as it provides:
- Very low radiation exposure; up to 10 times lower than conventional film imaging
- Clear images that can be enhanced, and easily manipulated for diagnosis and treatment planning purposes
