When one failed to practice correct oral hygiene, it is expected that dental problems are next to occur. However, some of us would bear the unbearable pain just to keep the dentist away.
It is worth to wonder why the fear of checkups when dental experts could help you ease your extreme pain. Maybe this is how we were brought up – visiting dentist will hur you more.
But a dental center exists that changes the whole ball game and eliminates these fears and apprehensions – the GAN ADVANCED OSSEOINTEGRATION CENTER or simply GAOC.
As you enter the GAOC’s state of the art dental center located on the ground floor of the posh The Residences in Greenbelt, Makati City, all your fears are swept away.
The spacious receiving area will make anyone at ease with its modern and clean design. Big monitors show prominent individuals each giving their endorsement of the service provided by the GAOC, its Doctors, its staff, and services. Reception and the initial consultation, the first steps, are processes in themselves that reassure patients have found the right dental partners because dental programs are specifically created and tailored for each patient.
GAOC is the brain-child of Dr. Steve Mark Gan. A young and dynamic oral surgeon educated in both the Philippines and the United States who started GAOC in 2001.

“Each Dentist and the staff at GAOC are committed to assisting our patients and provide solutions that will fit their needs. We listen to what they want to achieve and provide the world-class solutions that we have made available and offer in the Philippines!” says Dr. Gan.
GAOC is actually a “One Stop Shop” oral health center, as it has a state of the art X-ray room that provides a 360-degree view of one’s mouth. Extensive, state of the art, fully equipped surgical rooms allow dentists and assistants freedom of movement during major dental surgeries performed in-house.
“This makes all our procedures time efficient and convenient as we do not have to outsource the service and make the patient return for another visit,” says Dr. Gan. “We also have a company laboratory partner that prioritizes our requirements for dental implants, crowns and dentures using the highest Japanese, Italian and German technologies and artisans to ensure that these look natural” he added.
Over the years, GAOC has built a reputation for quality as attested to by business leaders like Mr. Lucio Tan and politicians like former President Joseph Estrada. Actors and Actresses have flocked to GAOC seeking that perfect statement smile they need to maintain. These include Boy Abunda, Piolo Pascual, Derek Ramsay, Sarah Geronimo, Kim Chiu, John Lloyd Cruz and Lovi Poe among others, all of whom provide proof of the high quality of services and results provided by GAOC.

“Years from now there will be charging stations situated throughout the urban areas but right now, people will have to resort to other methods instead,” said Lamberto Armada, the Chief Engineer at H2O Technologies.
This idea gave way to the creation of Salamander HydroPlus.
H20 Technologies, Inc. launched an innovative concept vehicle designed to meet a unique local need to be able to run on land and on water.
“The Salamander will carry a total of five passengers excluding the driver on both land and in water. Therefore, in a Barangay which may simply be waiting for floodwaters to subside, the Salamander would be perfect to allow workers to get back to their normal modes of transportation and make their way back to work,” said David Ong, Chairman of H2O Technologies in a press release.
H2O Technologies states that the Salamander concept can reach speeds on land of up to 80 km/h and up to 6 knots (11 km/h) on water using a marine-grade propeller. The designers also state that the Salamander can seamlessly switch from land to water propulsion using their own technology.
Moreover, H20 Technologies debuted two versions of the Salamander; one running on a 250cc motorcycle engine and another that runs on electric propulsion.

Once you decide that you want your new business to be as successful as possible, it’s time to realize your professional vision. To ensure that you can, consider the value of keeping your office stocked, taking your company online, and focusing on self-improvement.
Tech giant Acer continues to assess its relationship with its guests around the globe. For many years, the company has focused on providing clients with innovative services and products that are not only excellent but provides added value at the same time.
And Acer Philippines, Inc. are no dissimilar. But recently, Acer held its first CIO forum for the year entitled “Upgrade: Acer – Windows CIO Forum.” The event gathered Chief Information Officers of companies from different industries to showcase the latest and newest Acer product offerings and services to existing and possible customers.
Sue Ong-Lim, Acer Philippines Sales and Marketing Director, on the other hand, alleged that they embarked on the CIO forum of Acer back in 2008 with the purpose of establishing a firm client base for Acer’s Commercial Sales Group. Back then, attendees were riveted on a “per industry” basis and only existing clients.
This year, however, Ong-Lim decided to mix it up by inviting attendees from mixed industries and also new and potential clients and gathered them in one venue. The client mix included representatives from the academe, government, telecommunications—all “loyal” industries that have regularly attended the forum—plus attendees from the manufacturing and retail industries.
“It was a challenge for us since Acer was known as a consumer brand so we had to grow commercial sales by coming up with various strategies,” Ong-Lim said.
She mentioned how they started building the team first, then established partnerships with valued partners. They even provided various incentives to channel-partners and end-users, which came in the form of “boot camps,” especially for clients from the Academe, or events or what Ong-Lim said were “learning trips” both here and abroad.
With these, Ong-Lim slowly but surely grew the group. From a mere 5% contribution to Acer’s revenue, the Commercial Sales Group now contributes about 25% to Acer’s coffers.
And to add further value to Acer’s commercial products, Mon delos Reyes, Microsoft Philippines Partner Account Manager, also mentioned the “digital revolution” that Microsoft is mounting and how Acer products, particularly those that use the Windows 10 operating system, will play into this revolution.
Acer Philippines Managing Director Manuel Wong, for his part, thanked the CIOs for their continued support during his welcome speech. He also pioneered Acer’s service-oriented philosophy where he brought out “on-site services” where Acer engineers will be deployed at clients’ offices in order to provide immediate and better aid. He also shared information on Acer’s new and innovative products that truly provide value to clients’ investments.
