Dental care in Cebu?

Recommended Posts

AmericanInCebu

Getting to know several filipinas, I have been shocked at (i) their beauty and (ii) their horrific dentition.  I was on a date with a very wonderful and insanely lovely 19 year old girl.  Her teeth looked quite white and straight and I didn't give it a second though.  Then I actually felt her teeth _move_.  So I asked her, what is going on?  She said "oh, ummmm I have dentures."  That utterly, completely, totally creeped me out.  I think of dentures as the province of trailer-park denizens in the USA.  Hate to admit it, but being honest that was one reason I broke up with her.

(I was actually due for a routine cleaning once when I had a long business trip to Cebu, so I went to one of the practices in the Ayala Mall.  It was a very very crude cleaning and even though the dentist and assistants were quite professional in demeanor, the actual cleaning was terrible.)

Now I am dating another girl and her teeth are decent but by no means good.  She would benefit from having them tuned up.  What is the best dentist in Cebu to take her to?

I have for Catan Dental to be the best. p800 for a regular cleaning. They have appointments that they keep. Looks and feels completely Western except for the cute dentist and assistants.

They are directly across from Oakridge Business Park on AS Fortuna in Mandaue.

Any chance you can forward me the info for the 19 yr old with dentures?

Personally, I wouldn't do anything major dental wise in the Philippines. There are very few dentists there with a true western skill level. 

I have had better results with Malaysia (KL to be specific). Much higher skill set, better technology. Not saying that competent dentists don't exist in the Philippines, but they are few and far between when it comes to major and high end cosmetic stuff. Sure you can get a "doctor" to clean your teeth in the Philippines for $10, and it is adequate. This is a hygenist's job in the west. When you are talking about major stuff and cosmetic stuff, they tend to fall short.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a decent pediatric dentist?  Our daughter needs to see one for the first time and we want her treated well so she doesn't associate dentists with a traumatic experience and make future visits a fight.  She has no issues other than we want to begin her on a good cleaning routine.

We use Dr. Jill at Green Apple Dentists in Ayala (just down the steps from ABACA walking toward the old Marriott Hotel). My daughter is seven, and she likes Dr. Jill a lot. She is very good with both adults and children.

For more information on dentists, I would suggest you look here...

 That's not a very nice comment, you sound very much like a snob, as we Brits call people like you.

I didn’t mean it that way.  I do take your point and it’s fair.  It’s just that, to me, poor teeth at a very young age due to an addiction to sweets reflects a real lack of discipline and self-control.  It goes to someone’s character, in my humble opinion. Additionally, it’s just not a good solution: while dentures are well-accepted in elderly folks, young people who may still be growing very much need either their real teeth or at least implants, because the jawbone/jawline can and will shrink considerably without the proper forces holding things in place.

Do you feel it is the child's fault, or possibly the parents?

To me it came a cross as you looking down on those less fortunate than us.  We all know the Filipinos are some of the nicest and friendliest people on the planet.  Her indoors family are quite poor and the kids don't get a great deal of candy or sweet food.  But hey, there you go.
