Dr. Sonny

General Practitioner

I originally started a clinic in Olongapo back in 1971, a year after passing the board exam. Located right outside the former Subic Naval base, most of my patients back then were US Navy officers and personnel. But we eventually moved our practice to Metro Manila in 1984 because my wife Bee and I wanted our children to study in a good school in Greenhills. So we built a new clinic here, conveniently located near a big shopping district, and opened in 1985.

For many years, we lived on the two floors above our clinic. So the kids really grew up around the practice, seeing their mom and dad treat patients all day everyday. It was also great, because we could be with our kids in between appointments. We wanted them to be dentists when they grow up and fortunately, two of them — Dr. JR and Dr. Bu — followed in our footsteps, even going to the same university Bee and I attended.

We have built great relationships with patients throughout the years, many of whom became great, lifelong friends. We are happy knowing we can leave our practice — and our patients — in the extremely capable hands of our two sons and daughter-in-law, Michelle.

SPECIALIZATION: Endodontics (a.k.a. root canals!)

Ever since my undergraduate years, endodontics has fascinated me. The challenge of the subject excited and pushed me to develop my skills further and further. I graduated in 2006, passed the board exams in the same year, immediately joined my parent’s practice and started focusing on doing all the root canal cases that came my way. I am quite blessed by my parent’s practice that I was able to handle a good amount of root canal cases immediately. In 2009, I even started my post-graduate studies in Endodontics to further improve my knowledge and skill. I also became a regular member in the Endodontic Society of the Philippines and actively participated in most of the activities.
Besides dentistry, I also do photography. Its one of the ways I can actively express my artistic side. I do travel, landscape and portraiture photography when I have the chance. I was even called to speak to various groups and on the 2009 Philippine Dental Association’s annual convention to talk about dental photography.

Passion towards improving my knowledge and skill in dentistry (and photography) is very important to me. I often do this when I have time by reading books and on the net and listening to my seniors. For me, seeing the rewards of my work when I apply it in practice is very rewarding!

Dr. Michelle

SPECIALIZATION: Orthodontics

I became a dentist in 2006 and started working immediately as an associate dentist with two successful dentists in Las Piñas City. I’ve learned valuable lessons during that time — both in dentistry and dental practice management.

In 2007, I took my post-graduate studies in Orthodontics and TMJ Disorder Treatment under Dr. Marilou Sembrano. I grew up with a TMJ disorder myself and the ordeal I had to go through when I was young prompted me to take this specialization. The lack of specialists in this field urged me to study hard. I even treated myself and finally stopped the progression of my own TMJ disorder!

In 2010, I married Dr. JR and joined the family clinic in Greenhills. I found out that a family dental clinic has many benefits. For one thing, patients most often are able to trust us better because they see our family and how we work together as a team.

I really love improving people’s smile! Im very meticulous when it comes to balancing aesthetics and functionality in the mouth.  A nice smile, radiant white teeth and healthy gums can really boost a person’s confidence and thus improving their quality of life.

Dr. Bu

SPECIALIZATION: Implantology

I graduated from one of the best dental schools in the country, University of the East. Immediately after graduating and passing the 2007 Dental Board Exam, I pursued continuous education specializing on Dental Implants under the Philippine Institute of Dental Advancement (P.I.D.A.) with the privilege of having Ramonito Lee, DMD, Ph. D (one of the most sought after Oral-Maxillofacial surgeon and Implantologist in the Philippines) as my mentor. Aside from dental implants, I also love working with kids, cosmetic dentistry and anything to do with improving a person’s smile. I believe dental skills and technologies are just like apps on our gadgets that need constant updating, so dental updates have always been a priority for me.

I am also a blogger for ConfidentSmile.ph where I give tips, advice and news about how to have that confident smile in different aspects of life. I believe that smiles are not just for show but a reflection of a flourishing joy and contentment in life. Come visit our clinic and let us update your smile. :)
