Booking was a breeze. They were considerate when I had to rebook at the last minute because I had allergies on the day of my visit.
The deal included professional teeth cleaning (also called oral prophylaxis), fluoride treatment, and dental examination. Oral prophylaxis involves cleaning and polishing the teeth to remove plaque and tartar, prevent tooth decay, and visibly reduce stains.
I communicated with Chic Smile via text messages. They replied promptly and were always polite and professional. I appreciated that, because I had encountered several merchants who put landline and cellphone numbers on the deal's terms yet when I texted them, they never replied.
The clinic was not that big, but it was clean and cosy, with a simple yet modern design. The treatment room was spacious, well-lit, and also modern-looking. The dental equipment looked up-to-date.

The dentist was a pretty young lady named Loren. She spoke softly and was very accommodating. She answered all my questions without a hint of impatience and was not preachy. What I liked most about Doc Loren was that she did not try to sell (or upsell) me stuff or treatment, even when I asked her about braces, waterpik, and tooth extractions.
Before Chic Smile, my last visit was to a dentist in Manila two years ago. That time, I also liked the dentist but I did not like his co-dentist since the co-dentist asked me to show her my teeth (I found that intrusive and embarrassing), pressured me to get braces right away, and told me to have my boyfriend pay for the braces just because she learned that he was working for a TV network. Sheez!
Anyway, I was glad that with Doc Loren, I didn't have to avoid an annoying co-dentist and I could ask questions without worrying that I would be bombarded with offers. Thus, I was more relaxed during my treatment.
I normally dislike going to doctors and I especially fear dentists, but I had a comfortable time at Chic Smile. I recommend this dental clinic.
