Consistent quality dental practice and excellent customer service are what Gan Advanced Osseointegration Center, or GAOC, is known for.
It is because its founder, Dr. Steve Mark Gan, is a staunch advocate of unparalleled excellence in oral care, coupled with reliable and passionate service acumen to customers. This led to the rise of GAOC as a leading dental center in the country and one of the best in the Southeast Asian region.
As soon as he went back to the country after an intensive training and residency in the United States, Gan’s vision was already crystal clear and defined: GAOC will be the leading dental center in the Philippines known for its impressive menu of services that cater to almost all dental requirements and provided by a team of dental experts led by Gan himself, a fixture of state-of-the-art oral-care equipment yet to be seen in the Philippines, and manned by a highly trained staff whose mission is to provide service to the most discriminating patients in a most professional, yet gentle, manner amid an appealing and caring environment to ensure total customer comfort and satisfaction.
Name the service you want and GAOC will most surely have it. From cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, prosthodontics, dental implants, orthodontics, endodontics, general and pediatric dentistry, anesthesiology, teeth grinding and TMJ disorders, GAOC prides itself with giving top-notch care from the conventional to the most complicated oral-rehabilitation procedures to its demanding customers.
GAOC spared no expense in assembling the brightest minds in the dental profession in the Philippines today to provide these services. These dentists also undergo mandatory high-quality training, both here and even abroad, where dental technologies are among the most advanced in the world to be able to continue working for GAOC. It is because Gan himself, with his extensive academic background, is a firm believer in continuing education for dental-care practitioners in order to provide excellent service.
TO be able to provide its services, GAOC enlisted the best global technologies available when it comes to oral diagnostic and surgical procedures, dental implantology and jaw reconstruction. Investments were made on top-of-the-line materials, equipment and devices that can handle various dental procedures and can meet the demands of discerning patients.
Foremost among the equipment touted as the first of its kind in the country include a three-in-one digital dental diagnostic scanner. It is composed of a cone beam computed tomography (CT) scanner, cephalometric and panoramic x-ray that shows an accurate, high-resolution image to help dentists in assessing the problem correctly and recommend the best treatment plan. Other notable features of the GAOC facility are the Procera Forte Scanner, the latest and most accurate instrument for scanning crowns, laminates and abutments, and even longer bridges for both teeth and implant restorations, and the ShofuSingleMat Porcelain Furnace that has a user-friendly, single-firing platform with Quartz Muffle to be able to carve precise dental molds every time.
Of course, the purpose of the equipment will be put to naught if not for GAOC’s skilled laboratory staff. Closely following dentists’ instructions, they take the lead in carrying out various tasks like mixing ingredients, filling dental-appliance molds, sculpting and building forms, bending and soldering wires, even grinding and polishing finished work.
And the GAOC lobby is the epitome of what “ultimate patient care” is all about. While many may be intimidated at the sight of a dental clinic, the vibe at GAOC is mainly that of a beauty and wellness facility. The renowned GAOC service is immediately felt and your senses will be delighted by a relaxing environment not found in other dental clinics. You will even be made fully aware of the form of treatment since it will be explained in the most professional, meticulous, yet easily understandable, manner, making each of your visits to GAOC as something you can look forward to every time.
Spreading GAOC’s wings for the future
TO further spread the word of his vision of excellent dental care to more Filipinos, Gan also established Metro Dental, a pioneering world-class dental chain in the country. GAOC provides luxury, yet affordable, dental-care but made affordable for everyone. “I know that there are those who want to experience opulent dental care services that will not hurt their budget, ” Gan explains.
The future of GAOC is, likewise, laid out by Gan to help further grow the status of his renowned clinic locally and even internationally, and his pioneering vision of promoting the Philippines as a hub for “Dental Tourism” will not only benefit GAOC but also the entire dental practice in the country.
“We will definitely push to make the Philippines as a dental tourism hub in the region, perhaps, the whole world. Our advantage is we can offer the same high-end dental care and expertise that more modern clinics in other progressive countries offer but at the most affordable rates. We hope GAOC can contribute to lifting the tourism status of our country where we can give visiting tourists not only the best beaches and tourist spots but also the perfect smile they truly deserve,” Dr. Gan emphasized.
