Some of the celebrities spotted at the grand launch of GAOC’s 10th branch were Matteo Guidicelli, Vina Morales, Amy Perez, Jason Dy, Empoy, Dingdong Avanzado, Maymay Entrata, Edward Barber, Robi Domingo, Billy Crawford, and Coleen Garcia. Their love for Dr. Gan and his brand really showed as they made time from their busy schedules to drop by the opening—especially Billy, who came with crutches!
Matteo shares that he first met Dr. Gan in 2008 and has since been a patron of GAOC. “Everything is very personal. You get the best quality and the best service. My grandpa used to go to Hong Kong,” he reveals. “But (after) I introduced him to GAOC, he now goes to GAOC.”
Also present at the launch were Ruby Rodriguez, Jennylyn Mercado, Heaven Peralejo, Donnalyn Bartolome, Sarah Carlos, Andrea Del Rosario, Allan K, Roxanne Guinoo, and Aaron Villaflor, who’s been a GAOC client for more than a decade.
“I was with them [since] 2004, if I’m not mistaken. Tito Boy Abunda recommended it to me, my fellow SCQ (Star Circle Quest) questors, and Erich Gonzales,” he says. “It’s a privilege for us to be part of the GAOC family and now I’m thankful kasi it’s growing so fast.”
This love is not lost on the founder and heart of GAOC, Dr. Gan himself. When asked what the secret is behind the trust and the support from so many celebrities and high profile personalities, Dr. Gan explains, “I don’t only treat them as patients. I treat them as real friends, as real people. The friendship is genuine.
Dr. Gan has indeed earned the title “Dentist to the Stars,” as celebrities flock to his various clinics around the metro. Some of Dr. Gan’s loyal patrons and friends over the years include Jericho Rosales, Enchong Dee, Liza Soberano, Tony Labrusca, Piolo Pascual, and Ruffa Gutierrez.
GAOC is a state-of-the-art chain of dental clinics offering implant dentistry, and prosthodontic and cosmetic procedures that’s considered one of the best in the whole of Southeast Asia.
