ABOUT SKYE DENTAL
People have asked Dr. Andrew and Dr. May what the reason is for naming their dental clinic Skye Dental.
They have long had an affiliation with Skye, the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Ever since their undergraduate student days at The University of Glasgow, all the way to present day, they have had admiration for and a strong connection to this beautiful island off the West coast of mainland Scotland.
Let’s start with University. Studying a strenuous course full-time could bring on stress and take it’s toll on the body, both physically and mentally. For relief, Andrew and May would often hop into their tiny car and make the journey from Glasgow to the Isle of Skye. The journey itself is another story altogether (just ask them and I am sure they would share the wonders of it!) but when they reached the Isle of Skye, their stresses seemed to just melt away.
Once on the island, they would often stay at B&Bs and make trips around the island and make use of their time and resources whilst there (even once, up to the point where they literally had no more money and were forced to make the return leg of their journey).
They would visit the natural wonders of the island such as Neist Point, The Storr or The Cuillin. Then there are the man-made wonders of Skye, such as Tallisker Whiskey distillery. They would capture it all on camera and this probably led to their discovery of the wonders of photography. The island would stimulate every sense within them, from the amazing views of volcanic rock to rolling hills and endless horizons, the smell of fresh air and seaside, the peacefulness of the countryside, to the glorious tastes of local produce – just ask them about the gastronomic marvel at The Three Chimneys or Kinloch Lodge.
To summarize, the Isle of Skye is the epitome of beauty. It is otherworldly and will always hold a place in their hearts.
SKYE DENTAL LOCATION
Dr. Andrew and Dr. May have always felt a strong connection to Singapore, having studied and worked for more than 10 years in the UK. For Dr. May, it was a calling to return home and for Dr. Andrew, it was a calling to bring his touch as a British dentist in Singapore.
Having worked in various clinics, Dr. Andrew’s attraction to the shophouse was clear, so he decided he wanted to work in his own shophouse. It makes him feel at home and that is what he wants his patients to feel – comfortable, relaxed.
38 Club Street was an obvious choice, with a rich history to the pre-war building, including housing the esteemed BBC headquarters.

This is reflected in their dentistry too, with a wealth of traditional training and work ethic, combined with the new technologies and techniques offered in dentistry today.
