What do you love about your job?
Dr Yew practises all aspects of general dentistry while providing a gentle and comprehensive approach to oral care: “I believe it is essential to be attuned to each patient’s individual needs in the dental setting”. Having accumulated extensive experience over the years, Dr Yew has treated numerous highly anxious patients who are now able to routinely attend dental appointments and undergo treatment in the chair. Dr Yew believes that healthy teeth and mouth form part of overall general health: “Priority should be given to achieve health first in order to then achieve ideal aesthetics”. Dr Yew has a particular interest in the use of ceramics in cosmetic dentistry, bringing together the technical and artistic skills required to obtain highly cosmetic results for her patients.
