COVID-19 has been taking over all our lives and with many of the new cases linked to foreign worker dormitories in Singapore, local medical healthcare startup DoctorxDentist, together with their brand partners - Blueair and Schulke, has responded to the crisis by announcing their donation of 100 units of air purifiers and 500 bottles of hand sanitizers to the Community Isolation Facility at Singapore Expo.
DoctorxDentist Pte Ltd is a free Question and Answer medical and healthcare online platform in Singapore, comprising over 500 doctors in 40 different specialities who are actively participating to support the public. With more than 120,000 unique visitors every month and 10,000 registered users who have posted a total of 4,000 questions, to which doctors across all fields have contributed to over 6,000 answers - the platform offers professional and trusted advice for almost any medical question one may have.
World-Class Medical Professionals at Fingertips
DoctorxDentist combats the immense rise of fake medical news online, particularly around COVID-19, by giving the public a guarantee of legitimate medical advice. As only certified Medical Specialists who are registered with the Singapore Medical Council (SMC) will be allowed to contribute and address public medical concerns on the platform. The platform also complies with the international HONcode standard for trustworthy health information, a certification that is only awarded to a select few websites around the world.
Additionally, DoctorxDentist also offers free live webinar sessions, where users can interact in-real-time with Doctors and Dentists by entering their questions before and during the webinar, to receive free advice from medical health professionals on a particular topic that the public is interested in.
The company's promise and objective are to ensure free access of legitimate medical advice to the public, so that every person in Singapore would be able to obtain the level of professional medical information and expertise that the country is renowned for, and better yet, right from the comfort of everyone's home.
The Largest Group of Doctors on One Platform
DoctorxDentist prides itself on having more than 500 doctors across 40 specialities on their platform. On record, it is the largest group of local doctors, voluntarily sharing free advice for the good of the public, regarding COVID-19 and other medical issues, be it the common flu or concerns regarding women's health.
Additionally, DoctorxDentist has full transparency and accountability, as all doctors are reviewed by patients who have consulted them, and all patients are required to register online before leaving any feedback about medical practitioners whom they have been in contact with. This way, DoctorxDentist maintains itself as a trustworthy medical source, where both doctors and patients are accountable for each of their contributions, which creates a legitimate medical environment that best serves the community.
"Much of the information we find online is not written or verified by a medical professional, so for the typical reader, it's difficult to establish the relevance and credibility of the source," says, CEO Tristan Hahner.
