When Dr. Malony Santos visited my husband and me last year in Los Angeles, I asked him if he could help me with my teeth. All my life I had major dental problems. When I was young my dentist pulled many of baby and permanent teeth. This resulted in an uneven bite and assymetrical smile. I also had five missing teeth that had a porcelain bridge that was not fitted properly. Aesthetically it looked terrible. I lost my self confidence. I didn’t like my pictures taken because of my semi twisted smile. It also affected my health since I could not eat certain hard foods.
Dr. Santos confidently said he could help me. After he left the U.S. I excitedly planned my trip to the Philippines. My mission: to reclaim my beautiful smile again. I had complete faith in his words. As soon as I arrived, I had my first dental appointment with Dr. Santos. That started my month-long journey of dental appointments. I interchanged my dental visits in his St. Luke’s office and the Mall of Asia clinics.His clinics are comparable, if not better than my U.S. dentists. With Dr. Malony Santos experience, skills and competence is cosmetic dentistry, TMJ and oral surgery, he systematically created a plan to correct my bite and to improve the over all look of my teeth. His goal was to give me a total makeover using his talent in dentistry and art.Together with his excellent team of doctors, Dr. Lester, Dr. Anne, Dr. P.J. and Dr. Cathy, they showed me the perfect combination of professionalism and compassion. They were patient, gentle and very polite. They were also efficient and knowledgeable. With their masks on, you couldn’t tell that they all looked like teen-agers.After whole month of dedication and hard work, they finally did it. I was overwhelmed with my new look. My smile is symmetrical now, My teeth are so realistic I could fool myself. The most important part is that I could smile again with confidence, I didn’d expect the changes to be so dramatic. Thank you, Dr. Santos and all your wonderful doctors. I will always remeber you. You will be a part of my every smile. I know that God is working through your hands! I plan to tell my friends about this wonderful dental miracle that happened to me.
