TikTok pre-Movement Control Order may have been the trend app only among the youths, but now that everyone is cooped up at home with not much to do, more non-Gen Zs have hopped onto the bandwagon. For the uninitiated, TikTok is a video-sharing platform where users create short clips of themselves lip-syncing, dancing, doing comedy skits, and other challenges.

One of the most recent challenges to take the TikTok world by storm is the ultra viral ‘Don’t Rush Challenge’, where people share their glow upsThis time around, a group of local dentists decided to help keep things light during this uncertain time by creating their own version of the makeover challenge. Soon after, interested Malaysians flooded the comments section to gush over their good looks.


Attractive dentists swop out makeup brushes for dental mirrors


Typically, the ‘Don’t Rush Challenge’ has participants using a makeup brush to cover the camera to act as a transition between their bare-faced and glow up looks.

Our local dentists decided to add their own personal touch to the TikTok challenge to better reflect their professions by using dental mirrors instead.

They also forwent the glammed-up looks that we usually see in these challenges, and instead went down the casual attire vs professional uniform route.

And it seems that the lads are receiving extra attention for their charming good looks. Shah had a first-hand experience of the overwhelming response after he was bombarded with questions on whether the doctors were still single or already taken.

Malaysians weren’t shy to express their interest in these attractive dentists, as seen from some of the comments we’ve compiled from Shah’s Twitter thread.
