Do you know that October is National Dental Hygiene Month in the United States?

Yup. Other than autumn bounties and wickedly irresistible Halloween sweets, October is all about dental hygiene awareness in the US. Which sounds right since who would want a scary visit to the dentist after a month of feasting? Or should I say, an urgent rush to the dentist after a month of the lack of oral hygiene, while gobbling on too much sweet stuff.

This important message was recently introduced to Singaporean families and children in the form of a colourful Halloween party. Organised by GPlus Dental Center, a full-service dental specialist in Singapore, and aptly named A Spooktacular Dental Hygiene Event, the free-for-all celebration featured one Saturday afternoon of good food, lively music, and, of course, fun, engaging activities with a dental hygiene theme.

For example, in Tooth Detective in Action, young ones get to floss out yucky, seriously-yucky-looking purple plaque from dental mouth models. (The plaques are tiny bits of Play-Doh). The Let’s Go!! Brushing Adventure, on the other hand, uses oversized teeth to demonstrate proper brushing methods.

As a Halloween celebration, there were naturally lots of spooky Halloween-themed food and decorations too. A spirited guitar performance by guitarist and singer Carlos Sendros ensured that there were no dull moments for parents while the kiddies enjoyed themselves.

GPlus went to great lengths to provide a full Halloween party experience for all. Other than fun decorations and fantastic lucky draw prizes, there were costumes for kiddies to wear and even a dance instructor to lead children in singalongs.
Gtingotts Wizarding Bank Collectors' Edition
The top prize for the lucky draw was the Collectors’ Edition of Gringotts Wizarding Bank, worth nearly seven hundred dollars. I envy the winner of this!
Dental Hygiene Event for Children
These Play-Doh-ed dental models caught my attention the moment I entered the party. Don’t you agree they are the perfect adornment for a spooky Halloween party?
Halloween Themed Food Singapore
What’s a Halloween party without suitably themed food? I think everyone loved the Goblin Muffins and Gory Eyeball dessert. (Lychees really are perfect for making eyeballs, aren’t they?)
Carlos Sendros Guitar Performance
As mentioned, the clinic arranged for guitarist Carlos Sendros to provide live music entertainment. His dreamy licks and strums were certainly the perfect fiesta accompaniment for the party.

You might have noticed a strong Latin American flavour to the party, be it the food or choice of entertainment. According to Dr. James Ho, founder of GPlus Dental Center, this spooktacular event originated as an intended gathering for Spanish friends of the clinic but very quickly blossomed into a dental hygiene Halloween party.

A leading dental specialist who also practices in the United States, Dr. Ho wishes to use the event to encourage consistent oral care. With over two decades of dentistry experience across the United States and Singapore, Dr. Ho also strongly believes that it is the duty of a physician to cultivate awareness of the importance of preventive care, and not just attend to emergencies when patients come rushing to them in pain.

Said Dr. Ho: “Today marks the inception of our ‘GPlus Cares!’ dental care series. In our endeavour to transform dental education into an engaging experience, we designed this event to bring smiles to families’ faces! Our vision is for family members to support and remind one another of the importance of oral health, placing it on par with overall well-being. This is what can be done at an individual or family level. Our aim is to provide education for all through interactive and enjoyable means. GPlus Dental supports all patients by providing a full range of dental services in our Practice. It’s our privilege to help lay the foundation for comprehensive dentistry at an individual, family and clinic level.”

After flossing out all those nasty Play-Doh plaque, I’ll sure the kiddies fully appreciate the importance of Dr.Ho’s message.

Piñata Game in Singapore
There was a Piñata session! Probably because the toothy Piñatas were very properly cared for, it took a lot, a lot of tries to break them.

About the iTero digital scanner: It can swiftly perform a 3D scan and assist with how a Patient’s teeth can look like if they were lined up straight in the mouth. This flexible scan procedure is a powerful tool for Doctors to communicate with Patients.


Being fast and easy, an intraoral scan provides the ability to model the Patient’s teeth. Thus, Patients can see a model of their expected outcome when undertaking a teeth-straightening plan, such as Invisalign treatment. Dr. Ho is a Platinum Elite Provider in Invisalign.
