Dental discounts in the Philippines are virtually unheard of unless the dentist is your relative. And even then you only get a discount on services, not on parts. However, dental hygiene seems to be taking a back seat to dental reconstruction, and quite a few dentists are now also into reconstruction and beautification. I seem to see more and more kids wearing braces than I did several years back, and gone is the belief that only kids with pliable gums can benefit from braces. Apparently adults in their twenties and older can too.
