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!
