A paediatric and child ENT specialist handles all ear, nose, and throat (ENT) conditions that occur in children. Services provided by a good paediatric and child ent specialist here in Singapore is an important medical service as ENT disorders are some of the main reasons for children’s visits to the doctor. Children may not be able to express some of their symptoms accurately when unwell and they may not even be able to make known the pain or discomfort that they’re experiencing. Parents will need to seek timely treatment with a paediatric and child ENT specialist.


Our ears help us connect with the world, so it's essential to take care of them. Children's ears are delicate, and they may have ear problems like infections or birth issues. If your child shows discomfort related to their ears, it's best to see a paediatric and child ent specialist for kids' ears in Singapore. They can diagnose and treat the condition to keep their ears healthy.


The nose is important for smelling and filtering the air we breathe. Children's noses are still growing and can have various conditions. Allergies can cause congestion, itching, and sneezing. Nosebleeds can happen during dry weather but are usually not serious. If a child snores, it might be a sign of a bigger problem like sleep apnea. It's essential to watch for any nose changes and talk to a paediatric and child specialist for kids' noses in Singapore.


The throat consists of several structures that work together to perform important functions. The tonsils at the back of the throat play a role in fighting off infections and are part of the lymphatic system. They can become infected or enlarged, causing discomfort and interfering with normal functions in children. A tonsillectomy is a type of surgery performed by a paediatric and child ENT specialist to remove your child’s tonsils. The paediatric and child ENT specialist may recommend a tonsillectomy for your child if he or she has a persistent sore throat, recurring tonsillitis or strep throat, as well as if he/she snores at night and experiences pauses in breathing.
