When Stars Smile


More than a muscle reflex, smiling is a statement that is often associated with one’s confidence. Some disregard their teeth and are led to believe that brushing one’s set of pearly whites equates to oral healthcare, but more than this, oral healthcare also involves regular visits to the dentist, proper check-ups, and treatment. If actively taken care of, good oral health can be the perfect stepping stone to overall wellness.

As the authority in oral healthcare, the Center for Advanced Dentistry (CAD) says dental checkups may not be fearful anymore and problems such as tooth decay, mouth sores, and tooth sensitivity may be treated if addressed earlier.

“Chances are a visit to the dentist may not be painful as one expects, especially if they go to a clinic with modern equipment and technology and professional staff,” said Dr. Lito Librando, who established the clinic along with Dr. Nelda Eufemio and Dr. Mia Angeles.


At CAD, for instance, dental programs are tailored specifically for each patient, with a staff committed to help and provide solutions to any dental problem. “We listen to their woes and we don’t see them just as patients, we treat them as friends,” Dr. Librando added.


Equipped with state-of-the-art equipment in dental technology, the clinic offers services such as dental implants, cosmetic bonding, orthodontics or invisible aligners, gum re-contouring, teeth whitening, and general dentistry. The clinic also pioneered the use of wand plus, a modern anesthesia applicator.

Over the years, the clinic has built a reputation of having the highest quality service among politicians like Taguig City mayor Lani Cayetano and Senate house speaker Alan Cayetano, fashion designers like Mak Tumang and Rajo Laurel, and personalities like Pia Wurtzbach, Gabbi Garcia, Charo Santos, Georgina Wilson, and Isabelle Daza, among others.

The secret is out

Tucked away in Herrera Street, Legazpi Village in Makati City, CAD used to be a hidden gem that only some celebrities knew about. “The first big break for CAD was when we were tasked to do smile makeovers for Luis Manzano and Heart Evangelista for their upcoming commercial then. They eventually became our celebrity partners, then the rest was history,” said Dr. Eufemio. “Many modeling agencies trusted our dental works. Back then, there were no social media so referrals and word of mouth was our vehicle to get the word out there.”

All graduates from the dental school of Centro Escolar University, the three doctors also continued to further improve their craft by attending trainings on cosmetic dentistry focusing on veneers, restorations like crowns and bridges, and highly-specialized materials abroad in Leichtenstein, Europe.

Sharing the same passion for dentistry, they believe that CAD shouldn’t remain a “best-kept secret of the stars,” it should be made available to anyone who needs that beautiful smile. From their Cardinal Santos Hospital branch, CAD took the big leap and opened in O Square 1 building in Greenhills Shopping Center in San Juan City.

As with its other branch, CAD’s new clinic allows clients to experience its extensive range of premium services, and is equipped with modern interiors and top-notch equipment. These include panoramic x-ray machine and Snowy White whitening machine, the only one in the country, that whitens teeth, rejuvenates gums using radio frequency technology, and stimulates collagen production of the periodontal ligaments.

“We want to make CAD more accessible to the public and make our services available on weekends and holidays,” Dr. Eufemio added.
