Recommendations for Dentists in Manila

Recommended Posts

banyanman    49

I'm wondering if anyone has any up-to-date recommendations for a good dentist in Metro Manila? There are a couple of threads on this board on this topic, but they are a couple of years old, and didn't produce any recommendations of the type I'm looking for.  I'm not looking for a dentist in a shopping mall (I've had bad experiences with those here) and I'm not looking for someone in Banawe to do a cheap job - I'm looking for a top notch dentist who most likely already has a substantial expat clientele.

I've been living in the Philippines for 7 years, and during that time I've returned to Malaysia (where I used to live) on about three occasions for check-ups and treatment by a very good Chinese dentist that looked after me there for more than 10 years. He had an excellent reputation and people used to fly all the way from Australian to be treated by him when they had major work to do (apparently what he charged was about a third of what they charge in Australia and for major work it was cheaper to go to Malaysia even when taking into account the cost of airfares and 10 days accommodation).

But I'm not visiting Malaysia much these days so would like to find someone as good here in the Philippines.  Or do all the good dentists go overseas to work?

Sorry I missed seeing your earlier message Scott.  I ended up doing some extensive research online looking at clinics that had international accreditation and good reviews. I narrowed that down to seven clinics in total which included three in Makati, one in Paranaque, and one in Caloocan.  I ended up going to the one in Caloocan because that was the nearest to where I live, and was very satisfied with the service there. The dentist who treated me  was as good as the Chinese dentist I had in Malaysia and actually cheaper.

In case anyone is wondering, the other two clinics on my 'top 7 list' were in Angeles City and Legaspi.  I was surprised that there weren't more reviews for dentists in Cebu given the number of expats that live there.

Do you mean here on the forum? The topic title asks about Manila so most wont recommend someone from another city.

No need for private message unless you own the dentist clink or have a reason to get a financial gain. In other words there is nothing wrong with sharing info on the public side of the forum.

No, I was actually referring to the research that I did on the internet on dentists in the Philippines that were internationally accredited.  My comment was just an aside because I'd thought that if clinics in Legaspi and Angeles were achieving international recognition, there would be at least some in Cebu that would have comparable ratings.

Then again, there are always those few super helpful members who will make suggestions and after a couple more posts you find out they are talking about Australia or the US or the UK.... Last time I checked the map those were countries outside of the Philippines, and therefore irrelevant answers... LOL (sorry, I guess this is an 'up at 3am with a pain in the ass back' rant, and irrelevant also)

Sometimes it's best to say nothing because some people dont understand that the other party is trying to help or dont read correctly. Funny you know, I recall your air conditioning topic and the same f,en aircons are here in the Phils so thats why it was mentioned.  Rant over :thumbsup:

Actually there is a good one on the North side of Dumaguete. Actually planning an a massage today, found a masseuse at a spa in town that figured out my back. Last time she got it to pop 20+ times and then walked on it making the muscles relax. Some guys go places for a happy ending, I am much happier with a pain-free ending....

Is that the 'I bought a portable aircon in Florida why don't you read the manufacturer's website' thread that I posted back their US website lists it but the manufacturer's Philippine and International websites do not? (meaning they are not in fact here in the Phils - unless brought or shipped from the US?)
