Duterte to Crooked Cops – “Move Out”

President Duterte took exception to 228 crooked policemen who were immediately given the choice to resign or be sent to assignment in strife torn Basilan, Tawi Tawi and Sulu.

The policemen were give 15 days to get ready to either leave the force or accept and leave for their new assignments in the South.

Duterte was seething with anger at the palace ceremony and berated the assembled policemen who were caught by the PNP being involved in various cases of anomalies. Retraining will no longer be an option said the President as it does no good. “You will all be sent south to fight the terrorists and bandits, and if you survive and come back, then maybe you learned your lesson”- Duterte said.

The President met these policemen in Malacanang in view of the recent killing of a korean national, Jee Ick Joo who was found to have been tortured and murdered inside the Philippine National Police Headquarters at Camp Crame – an alleged victim of police extortion.  The alleged Policemen involved in the crime are both multi-millionaires based on their submitted Statement of Assets and Liabilities (SALN).

Previous two weeks saw successive Senate hearings involving policemen which has dismayed the President.  This has forced Duterte to abolish a unit of the PNP and ban its participation in the on going drug war.

PNP Chief Bato Dela Rosa for his part stated that shaming the policemen will send a clear message to others in the service.  He said that if there is someone who carries the biggest shame, it is him as head of the PNP as he has bad eggs in the service.  Senator Panfilo Lacson, a former police chief, for his part agreed to the process of shaming.

Over its 15 years of existence since its founding in 2001, GAOC has been a paragon of dental innovation and a champion in uplifting the dental profession. It has built a client base of over 10,000 patients. “We value our relationship with our patients and provide them the best care and world class products. It is a taxing task that we adhere to at all times!” says Dr. Gan.

Both the Conrad Hotel/S Maison and SM Seaside City Clinics in Cebu are now open. “The Conrad Center was initially set to open last September, but I wanted to make sure that all the equipment and fittings are even better than those of our existing clinics and that the staff and Doctors are fully prepared to provide GAOC’s type of world class dental service. The Cebu Center will also feature the highest standards in medical dental care!” according to Dr. Gan.

GAOC has always been positioned as a premier dental center with known celebrities, politicians and socialites as its clientele. What has been unknown to many is its active Corporate Social Responsibility that provides dental care for indigents in partnership with corporations and organizations like JCI & Operation Smile Philippines. The expansion, according to Dr. Gan, also aims to extend its reach across the nation to further strengthen its CSR Program that focuses on educating people on oral hygiene and provides free dental services to specific target communities.

From a 1 room, single chair clinic in Binondo, GAOC has grown to 9 world class, one stop shop dental centers made possible with the latest addition of the above-mentioned 2 locations with a complement of over 40 highly qualified Dental Doctors across all centers. Dr. Gan says the expansion will no longer tax our patients in terms of traffic and travel time. Client convenience was a big factor in the expansion decision where we could establish a GAOC clinic that will be near their location!

gaoc-binondo-clinic-birThe First Dental Clinic of Dr. Steve Mark Gan was founded in Chinatown 18 years ago and started with his savings of 3,000 pesos. In 2001 he started GAOC.

The outlook of Dr. Gan on the continued growth of Dental services in the Philippines remains bullish and positive. Gan, a former Chairman of the Professional Regulatory Board of Dentistry of the Professional Regulatory Commission, made sure that the level of professionalism of Filipino Dentists was raised to world class standards that allowed them to compete globally during his stint.

GAOC is one of the biggest chains of Dental Centers in the Philippines that adheres to these world-class standards in both its Doctors and facilities. Its services include: Dental implants and related surgical procedures, Cosmetic Dentistry and General Dentistry.
