The Malaysian dental fraternity recently presented an award to Dr Jaspall Singh, a senior dental practitioner and the current president of the Sikh Welfare Society Malaysia (SWSM).

The Malaysian Private Dental Practitioners Association (MPDPA) awarded him the ‘Outstanding Services Award’ at its recent annual gathering.

The award acknowledges and recognises the ‘meritorious contributions of a dental colleague in the dental profession locally and/or internationally, in society and community’.

“He has been very active in the Sikh community,” according to a citation read out in his honour.

“He has been providing free dental treatment for the Gurpuri (Shelter home for Sikh children) children and similarly to the OKU [disabled] at his clinic,” it adds.

MPDPA president Dr R Vijendran presented the award at its President’s Ball in Kuala Lumpur on Sept 19.

Dr Jaspall, 66, has served MPDPA as a president for two terms.

Born in Kuala Lumpur and is the fourth of 11 siblings. He did his secondary education in Ipoh, Perak, and completed the Bachelor of Dental Surgery at the College of Dental Surgery, Manipal in Karnataka, India in 1974.

He joined the Ministry of Health in 1974 and left in 1980 to start a private practice in Kuala Lumpur.

On the community front, Dr Jaspall has served as the deputy president of The Sant Sohan Singh Ji, Malacca Memorial Society, treasurer of the Tatt Khalsa Diwan Selangor and chairman of the Malaysian Sikh Union (F.T. Branch).

At SWSM, he had served as a treasurer for 10 years before being elected as the president at its annual general meeting in 2014.

He runs Rajamani & Jaspall Dental Surgery in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur.

  1. My many years experience when I visit Dr Jaspal is always very very good. You will never know when your tooth is extracted. It’s painless and fast.
    Not just extraction but overall his service is great.
    I have recommended many people and so far all are very happy with Dr. Jaspal service.
    I have travelled to many countries and seen many dentists and doctors.
    It is not true that all are good.
    God had made people with different abilities
    Thank you doctor, you are the best 👏👏👏
