Philippines' Banaue Rice Terraces

The Republic of the Philippines is an archipelago of 7,107 islands in the Western Pacific Ocean. The official languages are Filipino and English. Its location on the Pacific Ring of Fire makes it prone to typhoons and earthquakes, but extremely wealthy in natural resources. 

Transport is relatively undeveloped due to the nature of the archipelago, and the mountainous areas inland. Consequently, the nation is highly mobile with a culture of texting and exchanging greetings. For many, cellphones double as wallets. In fact, the Philippines is a leader among developing nations when it comes to mobile commerce. Three internet exchange points connect to eight submarine cables leading to the world beyond. Approximately one third of Filipinos are on the internet.

The local English patois called Filipino follows American spelling and grammar rules. While it is steadily replacing local languages in urban areas, visitors to country districts will notice differences in ‘f’ and ‘v’ inflections, and the switch of emphasis from first to second syllables. However, business English favors American conventions. Which is why, it wouldn't be hard to get around and ask directions from anyone whom you could come across. Even so, with your dentist.

Filipino Dental Industry

The Philippine Dental Act sets out the framework for the regulation, control and supervision of the dental industry. In practice, this is achieved through a Board of Dental Examiners, a Council on Dental Examination, and a Council for the Advancement of Dental Research. Responsibility for academic programs vests in the Board of Dentistry via the Professional Registration Commission. Successful graduates are subject to a Code of Conduct laid down by the Philippine Dental Association.

These regulatory guidelines ensure that suitably trained and registered dentists in are competent to provide international level implant, veneer, crown and bridge treatments.
