Already determined to become a dentist from when he was very young, Dr. Malony Lopez Santos aims to provide the best technologies and practices in the industry for his patients. The sophisticated instruments, materials and equipment he had seen and experienced at dental clinics when he was a boy had inspired him to pursue the discipline. These had also fueled a lifelong passion for learning and adapting the latest innovations, especially now that he himself has become one of the Philippines’ foremost dentists.
Graduating from Centro Escolar University (CEU) in Manila in 1994, Dr. Santos took his dental externship at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center (VMMC). He finished preceptorship courses at the Asian-American Academy of Functional Orthodontics and TMJ in 1996 and at the Philippine Academy of Esthetic Dentistry in 2004. By 2007, he had completed a 14-month course on Osseointegration Implants under the Philippine Society of Osseointegration.
Dr. Santos had also attended implant training under the IMTEC SENDAX Mini Dental Implant System in 2005. Since 2003, he has been an affiliate of St. Luke's Medical Center’s Department of Dentistry and Oral Surgery, completing post-graduate courses in Periodontics in 2004 and 2009.
Through the years, Dr. Santos has focused his practice on Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, Oral Surgery, TMJ, and Orthodontics. He finds great fulfillment in being able to replace missing teeth of patients and bring back dentition and dental functions to top form as well as relieve debilitating discomfort. And for him, giving patients the best smile they can have through various cosmetic treatments lends rewarding satisfaction. The best service he is proud to provide, alongside his diligent associates and staff, is helping patients gain great confidence and self-esteem.
To further enhance the services of Dental World Manila with him at the helm, Dr. Malony is planning to take a Master’s program on Prosthodontics and Implantology abroad. He also hopes to open 3 or 4 more branches of Dental World.
