The past week had been a great reminder to me about how important it is to take care of our teeth.
I had a terrible toothache that just wouldn’t go away even with different kinds of painkillers. I was seen by 3 different dentists and, at one point, I even went to St. Luke’s QC Emergency at 5:00 in the morning to seek advice and make sure that my dental situation was not turning into a medical situation.
Finally, I was able to get an appointment with our family dentist, Dr. Barrera of Samaniego and Associates. What a lovely dentist! Everything went uphill from there.
Zuri also had a check up and her first dental filling and was not terrorized at all. She even received a prize from the good dentist after her check up. 🙂
If you’re looking for a dentist for yourself or your child, I recommend Dr. Barrera. Call this number to set an appointment: +63(2)8151332.
Clinic address: Unit 203 2/F Centrum Building 2, 150 Valero Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City, Metro Manila 1200

I finally had my impacted wisdom tooth taken out last Saturday. I can’t thank Dr. Barrera of Samaniego and Associates enough for a comfortable wisdom tooth extraction. In my mind, I was prepared for a long oral surgery, but it only took the good dentist 30 minutes to finish! Given my history (read my story above), I was actually nervous at first but Dr. Barrera made sure I was relaxed. I didn’t feel any discomfort at all during the procedure. I was so happy and impressed by Dr. Barrera’s work, I could have hugged him, nahiya lang ako. 🙂
After the surgery, Dr. Barrera gave me a list of and explained to me the do’s and don’ts to make sure I will have a fast and stress-free post-op recovery. Thank you, Dr. Barrera! 🙂
Zuri also loves her dental check ups with Dr. Barrera. She had her 2nd filling last Saturday, too. It was a feat how Dr. Barrera was actually able to keep a squeamish child like Zuri comfortable and relaxed. 🙂
Thanks for reading! 🙂
