My wife and I checked quite a few dental clinics in Manila, Singapore and Thailand. The best prices were in the Philippines and one of the most reasonable in Manila was the “COSMETIC and FAMILY DENTAL” clinic. What needed to be done was serious work crowns and bridges.
What I discovered when we arrived is that, in Manila, not all dental clinics are created equal and I’m so glad we chose COSMETIC and FAMILY DENTAL CLINIC. European dental dentistry with Swiss dental technology, done by Europeans. The staff are genuinely caring and friendly. Dr. Elkie’s needles are painless, I kid you not shes an artist in that she will ensure that crown and bridgework perfectly suit your face and consult with you… be aware, near enough is not good enough for him. It must be right. It took a little longer than some of the other clinics were advertising but, what is it we wanted? We wanted the best quality: Dr. Elkie refuses to do anything except top quality work. This is no exaggerated claim: their slogan is the “best of the best” anywhere in the world but at prices which make it possible to have a wonderful full mouth again and not go bankrupt.
Fritz Minder is the technician and is an internationally renowned and award winning professional. Be prepared to wait for one week for your crowns. He only works for COSMETIC and FAMILY DENTAL CLINIC and the International work that comes to him – look up his website. He too is an artist and dedicated to top quality work. So we got the bridges and they were a perfect fit. The zirkonian ceramics look natural and we came away very happy.
We stayed at the Parque Espana, a residential hotel in Alabang, which is a well-to-do area in Manila. Sure you can get cheaper accommodation but trust me, you will want a few creature comforts and also be in a place where you can cook your own meals if you wish to and feel like you’re home. The staff were great! The price we paid was around US$100 a night. Money well spent. I have been asked to write this review. I’m an artist and writer and I’m not getting paid for this. I’m writing the truth. There is, in my opinion, no other clinic to go to other than COSMETIC and FAMILY DENTAL CLINIC in Manila. It’s a brand new facility utilizing the newest technology by a team of “freaks” for quality. We’ll be going back.
