Apart from budgetary constraints, another reason why people do not like going to the dentist is because of fear. Most people do not like visiting the dentist because of the pain that they will feel when the dentist starts on doing some treatment. Fear is also created by the movies: whenever we see people sitting on a dental chair, they feel excruciating pain. Parents also tell their children that when they misbehave and do not take care of their teeth, they'll bring them to the dentist and the dentist will pull all their teeth.
Gan Advanced Osseointegration Center or GAOC, a premier dental clinic in the Philippines, has opened its latest branch in S Maison, Conrad Hotel Manila last Sunday, April 23, 2017. The opening of GAOC's latest branch was attended by celebrities, politicians, and businessmen.
