Our History

Kenyalang 2                                     Clinic Signboard                                Kenyalang (Hornbill) Roundabout

While travelling around the BDC roundabout, renamed the Kenyalang Roundabout, on a warm Saturday afternoon in December 2005, Dr. Christina, spotted a vacated shop-lot upstairs of the then Nissan car showroom. However, there was no “FOR RENT” signage displayed. She then proceeded to contact the owner of the unit and the rest, as they say, is history. Dr. Christina’s Dental Clinic was officially established on the 6th of June, 2006. The Nissan car showroom has since been replaced by Mitsu Teahouse.
