I thought I would add.

 

I went to Smile Designs ( SM Mall) yesterday on the advice offered here

 

Overall pleased.

 

Autoclave-Yes.. I saw it with own eyes

New Gloves-Yes

Friendly, efficient, punctual and organized-Yes

Accept Visa--Yes

Xray Machine-Yes

Panaromic Xray-No

Cost-Resonabble

I counted at least 3 dentist on Staff. Good English and very professional. 2 ladies helped us and were top notch (easy to look at also) not that it mattered.

 

I needed a panoramic and they had to send me to a place across from Park Mall, although they do have the regular X-ray. The Panoramic was about 800 P. About 18.00 US. (You have got to be kidding me, that is so freaking cheap.) I love it

 

Turned out I have some periodontal issues and they referred me to a specialist.  My examination and the 3 regular X-rays they took was about 400 Pesos.

 

My wife had 4 teeth missing she had accumulated over 37 years. No surprise there. They are not visible, and in the US it would have cost between 7-10k (US).  They quoted 54,000 (P)  around 1,230 US. We made the decision to go ahead. They did the prep work yesterday and we go back for the crown fitting tomorrow. My BIL is a Dentist in Manila and said that was a good price.

 

Dental care is affordable here. It is unaffordable in the US and most dental insurance does not pay more than between 1-2K per year.

Thanks Scruffydog. You said your wife has four missing teeth. What does the 54,000 pesos include (bridges, crowns, implants, what)?

Four bridges from my best understanding, which will result in 9 crowns, from my understanding . I asked about implants. I was told 85,000 P.  Less than 1/2 the cost in the US

I used to be scared of dentists because of the pain.

 

Now I'm scared of dentists because of the cost.

They must have too much business.  Not that many years ago I had crowns done there for P4000 (metal base with ceramic top).

probably, a few years ago, my husband has his teeth done by the Dr Annette (the lady doctor has more gentler hands to the husband doctor).  Recently he has some work done on his teeth here.  the dentist told my husband that whoever had done his teeth - had made a very good job at it.  now thats very rare for dentist here to comment on someone else work.

I had some work done years ago at the Fernando dental clinic, they did a bridge which did not fit properly. When I went back they got very rude, still dealing with it today.

I had some issues with them too, for what I thought was substandard work.  Yes, attitude was also part of the problem.  They didn't like having flaws pointed out to them and were arrogant and dismissive.  Needless to say I don't use Fernando any more.

Which dentist were you dealing with??????  the wife or husband????  before we use Fernando, we were advice to asked specifically for the wife to work on your teeth which we did.  i wonder if that could be the reason.  my husband had to make 3x visits for the dental work.  in one of his visits the dentist husband was there.  he noticed that the dentist husband seems to have a sour face looking at his dentist wife having a long queue of patients waiting for her.  the wife as already mentioned, certainly made a good job with my husband's teeth and was most gentle and  charming while working. my husband is most certainly pleased with her work except the price - which he reckons at that time was rather steep but didnt complain as he doesnt want any cowboy dentist.

 

of course i am not degenerating your experience and im glad you posted your bad experience as we planned to visit Fernando dental clinic again.  this is something worth bearing in mind before we make a visit.

 

so again thank you for your honesty!

Any idea what their price & service is like for the more routine stuff like cleaning and extraction?  Looking for dentist and this is good location for me.

Ok so my two visits to the dentist went well, as well as can be expected sitting in a dentist chair for nearly three hours on my first trip and then 2 hours my second trip. My dentist was very good although I have very sensitive teeth yes it was painful but she did a good job.

My new Hollywood smile now looks and feels great and I would recommend her for any serious dental work. I'll post pictures later before and after
