CORPORATE EXCELLENCE

Gan Advanced Osseointegration Center (GAOC)

Fear of the dentist is such a common occurrence there is a medical term for this very real condition: dentophobia. The dentist is always seen to be the embodiment of “Dr. Pain” with injections, drills, and pliers. Few ever go to the dentist willingly. At one time, it was said that even brave men who were willing to face bullets were not willing to face their dentist. The dentist’s chair was like an “electric chair” once the patient is strapped to it; he has to meet his fate. Of course, unlike doomed convicts, patients all walked out of the dentist’s chair alive, living another day to tell their harrowing tale.

Redefining Perceptions
The Gan Advanced Osseointegration Center, better known as GAOC, has totally redefined that general perception by having established a mark for upgrading, humanizing and even glamorizing the practice of dentistry these days. It makes it a point that the moment a patient enters a GAOC lobby, all fear about dentistry is eliminated. Every GAOC reception area personifies the epitome of what “ultimate patient care” is all about. The vibe is mainly that of a beauty and wellness facility; its renowned service is immediately felt and one’s senses will be delighted by a relaxing environment not found in other dental clinics. The patient will even be made fully aware of the type of treatment since it will be explained in the most professional, meticulous, yet easily understandable, manner, making each of their visits to GAOC something they can look forward to every time.

GAOC has become, for all intents and purposes, a “one-stop shop” for every person’s dental needs. From cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, prosthodontics, dental implants, orthodontics, endodontics, general and pediatric dentistry, anesthesiology, teeth grinding and TMJ disorders, GAOC prides itself with giving top-notch care from the conventional to the most complicated oral-rehabilitation procedures to its patients.

Brightest Minds
With the most technologically-advanced facilities that rival the world’s best dental centers, GAOC has already overturned perceptions about traditional dental care and made the practice of dentistry a most sought-after profession. This is because GAOC spared no expense in assembling the brightest minds in the dental profession in the Philippines today to provide these services. These dentists also undergo high-quality training, both here and abroad, where dental technologies are among the most advanced in the world. Trained to handle the most advanced techniques and technologies available, they are supported by a caring and attentive group of dental assistants, hygienists and dental nurses. Each staff of GAOC works to meet all the dental needs of its patients in a professional and gentle manner, ensuring comfort and satisfaction. GAOC’s exacting culture of excellence is mirrored on the founder’s obsession with providing the best patient care. Dr. Steve Mark Gan is a staunch advocate of unparalleled excellence in oral care, coupled with reliable and passionate service acumen to patients. This led to the rise of GAOC as a leading dental center in the country and one of the best in Southeast Asia.

State-of-the-Art Facilities
To be able to provide its optimal services, GAOC enlists the best global technologies available when it comes to oral diagnostic and surgical procedures, dental implantology and jaw reconstruction. GAOC takes great pride in providing the latest in technology and techniques, specially equipped to handle stringent dental requirements of its distinguished overseas and local clientele. Investments are constantly made in top-of-the line materials, equipment and devices that can handle various dental procedures and can meet the demands of discerning patients.

GAOC is now fully digital, using only the most advanced technologies such as innovative intraoral scanners, which enable the digital impression-taking of a full range of indications and materials, as well as CAD/CAM application which attains finished dental restorations through a fine milling process of ready ceramic blocks.

Unrelenting Expansion
Under the direction of its President & CEO, Dr. Steve Mark Gan, the GAOC Group decided to backward integrate by establishing Samurai Dental Laboratory, a specialized fabrication facility that manufactures the widest variety of crowns and dental prostheses in the country. With the aim and view of raising the profile and quality of the dental industry in the Philippines, they also launched GTI – Gan Tech, Industries – a distribution company that carries only the world’s best dental equipment, instruments, and bio-materials for Filipino dentists who would otherwise not have access to these world-renowned brands at affordable rates.

They also opened a new dental chain, Novodental, which caters to the mid-tier market and is targeting to open 30 branches over the next 4 years. The ambitious vision does not stop there. Dr. Gan wants to give back and focus on developing the minds of future dentists through the GAOC Dental Academy. This institution will grant students the opportunity to learn from esteemed professionals from the United States, Europe, and Asia.

Brand Promise
To date, GAOC remains at the forefront when it comes to the specialized field of dental implants, which has established itself as an esteemed dental institution for the past 18 years.

Celebrities and socialites alike make no secret of their patronage to GAOC. Because of its world-class results, GAOC has created a stir outside the Philippines among fellow Filipinos and foreign nationals alike, making the center a global player. GAOC’s logo represents the titanium screw of a dental implant and the curved lines on each side signify the drilling of the screw. The logo itself proclaims advanced dental implant center, which is why the words dental and clinic are not evident in the brand name, leaving people curious as to the meaning of “osseointegration.”

Its tagline, “Your smile. Your statement.” Exemplifies the kind of high standards that GAOC has set for itself. Because of their absolute faith in this philosophy, members of the GAOC team are committed to performing to his or her highest ability in order to achieve the optimum level of care. The GAOC Team is dedicated to offering patients the highest quality of dentistry available, as well as the latest techniques and technology, to ensure patient comfort and satisfaction. Indeed, with GAOC, having your dream smile without the fear of a dentist is no longer a dream, but a palpable reality today.
