Smilepoint is CPF Medisave accredited Dental Clinic for dental surgery. For patients who are Singapore Citizens or Permanent Residents, you may be able to claim part of your surgical expenses from your CPF Medisave Account. Patients who do not have sufficient funds in their Medisave account to cover their dental expenses may use the Medisave funds of their immediate family members (Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident). Immediate family members include spouse, children, siblings, parents and grandparents.
It is a common practice for many other dental clinics to collect the full cash amount before processing the claim.
At Smilepoint Dental, we try to simplify the process so that the patient does not need to come up with cash upfront.

In the case of immediate family members, they must be either Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident (if the Medisave account holder is not the patient, proof of their relationship i.e. marriage certificate, birth certificate is required).
Sufficient balance is required.
You can also print out this form from the CPF website using your SINGPASS by logging onto your account or go to any of the CPF offices to request a printout.
To ensure the privacy of patients, Smilepoint will not go into the patient’s account to check the balance.
After the claim is submitted, The CPF board will write to the Medisave account holder with the total amount that has been deducted from the Medisave account.
If the patient does not submit the above documents before the surgery, the full payment will need to be paid in Cash or Nets.
Documents will then need to be submitted within 5 working days to allow the use of Medisave. In this instance, the money can only be refunded in 3 weeks after Medisave approval & banking clearance. All monies can only be refunded in the form of a crossed cheque to the Medisave account holder’s name and need to be collected & signed for in person.
Dental Implants are devices that replace the roots of missing teeth. They are used to support crowns, bridges or dentures. Implants are placed in your jawbone by surgery. Most of the time, implants feel more natural and secure than other methods of replacing missing teeth, such as dentures.
