General Dental Surgeon, Raffles Dental, 29
Currently dental physician leader for the Raffles Medical Group’s East cluster of clinics, Kieu was only 26 when he first managed the Singapore Prison Services Dental Services. A graduate of NUS Faculty of Dentistry — where he was awarded the university-wide Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher Award — Kieu’s accelerated career has seen him go on to receive the Raffles Medical Group Chairman’s Service Excellence Award 2013 for his compassion and commitment to patient welfare. Away from the office, Kieu is an active grassroots leader in Tampines where he was appointed town councillor in 2013. He has also chaired or served as a member of various grassroots committees over the last six years, serving youth, elderly and other community causes. “I love meeting people from all walks of life and working hand-in-hand to help forge a better community for all. I also cherish the opportunity to engage and empower youths — the leaders of tomorrow,“ he shares. One initiative he feels strongly about is Festive Wishes Come True, a programme that raises funds to fulfil gift wishes made by children of lower income families every December.
