More than just a muscle reflex, smiling is a statement.
It’s a manifestation of you choosing happiness, as there are a thousand and more reasons to smile about in life.
They say a smile can make all the difference — it releases stress, calms you down, makes you more attractive, and likely brightens someone else’s day.
If you are not smiling because you have bad teeth, you are missing a lot.
We in Cebu have a lot more reasons to smile now.
Gan Advanced Osseointegration Center (GAOC) has brought its brand of world-class dental services to the Queen City of the South as it opens its sixth state-of-the-art dental clinic at the SM Seaside City Cebu.
Since its inception in 2001, GAOC has been synonymous with excellence in dental care, founded by world-renowned dental surgeon Steve Mark G. Gan D.M.D.
As the trailblazer in dental implant surgery in the country, GAOC offers an extensive range of superb services — from general dentistry, to oral surgery and periodontics, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, prosthodontics, as well as cosmetic and laser dentistry.
Dr. Gan has a tremendous background in dentistry.
He took up his Residency in Advanced Prosthodontics at the prestigious University of Southern California-School of Dentistry and Prosthodontic Osseointegrated Implants at the University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA).
He is also a member of the American Society of Osseointegration and the American College of Oral Implantology; a former board member of Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) Board of Dentistry, and is presently a visiting Professor at the University of Genoa, Genova, Italy.
Then again, for many of us, there’s this common fear of going to the dentist.
And there are those who will only seek dental care when they have a dental emergency, such as a toothache or dental abscess.
Well, you’ll be delighted to know that GAOC has got it down pat—dealing with one’s phobia and actually making your dental sessions more pleasant, not to mention, a guarantee that you will be happy with the results.
As Dr. Gan puts it, GAOC follows its three Cs—consistency, communication and commitment.
“We try to be consistent as possible in giving the best care, and number two, communicate with our patients, laboratories and us, as we try to be transparent as possible. And lastly, we have to be true to our commitment in finding solutions to our client’s problems to preserve trust,” he said.
The first order of business is to create a warm and cozy experience, bringing the best dental care in a spa-like environment.
Touring the 400-square meter clinic nestled at the third wing of the SM Seaside City Cebu, you will immediately notice its clean, polished premises and state-of-the-art equipment.
And then there is GAOC’s operating room.
Typically, operating rooms can be a scary place, with unfamiliar equipment, people wearing masks, whirring sounds, etc.
The operating room at GAOC is not intimidating at all. For starters, it offers a relaxing view of a lush garden.
GAOC clinics are also located at the Medical Plaza, Makati; St. Luke’s Medical Center Global City, Taguig; The
Residences at Greenbelt, Makati; Trinoma Mall, Quezon City; Robinsons Magnolia, Quezon City; S Maison, Conrad Manila, and Civic Place, Filinvest Alabang.
