66 Yr. Old with Old, Chipped Bridges and Gum Discomfort - Philippines

I went to the Philippines precisely to consult with BHMG regarding my dental concerns.
I have bridges and crowns which I have had for a long time that I intended to substitute with newer and better replacements.
I was given an appointment within a day of our arrival on a Saturday for the initial consultation with Dr. Theresa Mendoza, the very professional yet very charming head of the dental clinic and her associate, Dr. Suzy Macainag. Her initial assessment included a variety of options which she explained in detail and with such amazing self confidence that one cannot help but be assured of her knowledge and expertise in dealing with complicated dental problems. I trusted her immediately!
The very courteous BHMG staff scheduled the medical clearance necessary for me to undergo the surgical procedure promptly and efficiently and within the following week,
I already had my implant posts and bridge, dental dressings and temporary fittings. The follow up appointments were frequent, meticulous and efficient. Medications were always included as well and the quality of materials used are unsurpassed even by US standards.
The environment at BHMG is impressive because it is centrally located at a very pleasant suburb, the clinic itself is super clean and equipped with the most modern conveniences, the surgical suites and recovery rooms are comparably equipped with US made furnishings such as stretchers, monitors, etc. I attribute this impressive facility to their most capable CEO and her excellent vision and management style. Her courteous staff who greets each client with a warm "hello, mam or sir" is one of her most valuable asset because they are very polite, gracious, competent and committed to personalized and professional service.
Appointments are so flexible that they accommodate and adjust their schedules according to their clientele’s availability including weekends and late nights. Transportation to and from the clinic is even provided when necessary…how marvelous is that!
My bill for 6 implants, bridge with multiple crowns and drainage of abscess, all under general anesthesia was $12,500. Consultations, laboratory workup, X-Rays, EKG, medical clearance by an internist, anesthesia, medications, quality dental materials/supplies/products and follow-ups are all inclusive in the bill.
If you want excellence, satisfaction and affordable services, I highly recommend that you call or visit BHMG in the Philippines because it is well worth the experience. Use their website for questions, quotes, chat, etc. to make inquiries and research.

Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, there were no photos taken before and after the implants. However, I will be returning to the Philippines within 6 months to a year to complete the implant process and I will then post an update with a photo of the final reveal. I have the temporary at present which by the way looks so good that people think that I have the permanent already. It takes months for the gums to heal around the posts implanted and so I decided to go back to the USA because of previous commitments.
I do brushing and water pic flossing at least two times or more a day and consciously avoid abusing the temporary by eating less crunchy or chewy food but it does not impede my eating habits too much. When I go back for the final part of the process, the permanent will be Zirconium per Dr. Mendoza.
Dr. Theresa Mendoza

Excellent and proficient dental practitioner with very charming personality. After the initial consultation, one can surmise her expertise and trustworthiness. She spent at least 1 1/2 to 2hrs. explaining the options and demonstrating the procedure.
