Let’s put an end to pasar malam dental practices

IN this day and age, we would think that people would go to a certified dentist for dental treatment. But surprisingly, there are patients who walk into dental clinics seeking remedial treatment after visiting a “roadside dentist”. Most of the complaints involved pain and discomfort, problems removing their “denture” for cleaning, and swollen gums.

When questioned, they own up to receiving their dental treatment on a plastic chair in a pasar malam setup.
