The Philippines is starting to establish itself as one of the top dental destinations in Southeast Asia.  Philippine dentists are expanding their reputation with dental patients from around the globel by continuing to deliver quality dental care.  


Visitors to the Philippines experience a superb level of dental care which is comparable to and in some cases better than what they would experience at home.  Travelers to the Philippines can generally save up to 70% on their dental care.

Dentists in the Philippines perform all standard dental procedures: implants, crowns, veneers, root canals, extractions, dentures, teeth whitening, braces, fillings & bridges.

The major centers for dental tourism in the Philippines are:  Manila, Makati, Davao, Pasig, Bagui City, Angeles City, Cagayan De Oro.  Manila has by far the largest number of Philippine dental clinics and dentists.  

Philippine dentists are regulated & registered with the Philippine Professional Regulation Commission and are members of the Phillipine Dental Association

Philippine dentists give dental patients the ability to receive world class dental care at a discount and the opportunity to experience amazing beaches, diving & snorkling, cave exploration, Extreme/Eco/Educational Adventure Tours, culture and fabulous food all in one country.

Philippine Transportation
The Philippines consists of 7,017 islands and to say that it is spread out is an under statement.

Taxis
Taxis are plentiful and a more expensive form of transportation in the Philippines.  The same rules apply in the Phillipines as other countries in Asia Pacific:  make sure you use a metered taxi, know where your destination is located.

Buses
Are divided into two categories:  air conditioned and non air conditioned buses. Buses are generally used for longer trips within the Philippines vs. Tricycles & Jeepneys.

Tricycles
Are in essence motor cycles with side cars attached.  They are generally available in all major cities and the least expensive method of transportation.

Jeepneys
Probably the most popular form of transporation in the Philippines.  Jeepneys were modified by jeeps left over by the Second World War and are distinctively a Philippine tradition (some would say an icon).  Flag down a Jeepney just like you would a taxi.

Pump Boats
Used as a main mode of transportation from one island to another. While many of the boats used for transportation purposes in the Philippines do not have motors, most modern pump boats do include larger motors that make travel more efficient. Tourists who visit the Philippines will often find that island-hopping includes taking a ride in a pump boat or two.

Philippine Communication

Phones
Public phones are still plentiful but like everywhere they are slowly growing harder to find as people adopt cell phones.  The preferred methods to communicate with home are:  
  1. buy a prepaid SIM card an insert into your cell phone for cheap domestic and international calls 
  2. use the internet to call home via Skype orGoogle Chat
Internet access
The Philippines has plentiful options to access the internet through your hotel, dental offices or cyber cafes.  You will not need to go far to find free wifi access or paid internet service in the Philippines.
