the Founders

Mr Elton Sim & Dr Jet Yong

Platinum Dental started up with a friendship. Back in 2018, Elton was working as a businessman whilst Dr Jet was still working as an associate in a private dental clinic. During a chill drinking session after a night of futsal game together, Jet shared about his ambition to build a dream dental team who focuses on digital dentistry, which was not widely seen in Sabah at that time. Elton was greatly inspired by Jet’s vision and decided to embark on this journey together with his best friend.

As a non-dentist, given his business experience, Elton guides the company with appropriate strategies and aligns the organization.
Together, they aim to focus on offering more radical and innovative technologies in dentistry, which will immensely improve patient’s oral care experience.

“If you want to go fast, go ALONE. If you want to go far, go TOGETHER.”
