Ravi Philemon spreading half truths on NSFs not getting free dental or hospitalisation by the Government?
The facts are, dental treatments in SAF dental clinics for NSFs are fully subsidised. Just like service injuries during training will be fully subsidizes by the Government!

You will receive free dental treatment at the SAF Dental Clinics. Beyond the SAF Dental Clinic’s in-house resources, if you are referred to a restructured hospital for follow-up treatment, you will be subsidised according to your dental benefits scheme. The cost of precious metals used in treatment and fees for the services of a commercial laboratory will have to be borne by you.
