Dr. Richard F. Liao

He passed the licensure exams for dentistry, which he took a month after his college graduation. He first worked as an Associate Dentist in established dental practice and worked in an industrial clinic, honing his management skills, proficiency, and confidence in handling dentistry cases.
He started his private clinic back in 1997 in Sta. Cruz, Manila, and began affiliation from most health insurance companies, catering to vast numbers of patients from different industries. He broadened dealings with customers with enterprise health benefits, ranging from employees to company employers, staff to managers, extended dependents, and so on.

He is a member of the Philippine Dental Association and Manila Dental Society.
In 2006, Dr. Liao successfully passed the American Dental Board Exams that he took in San Francisco, California, U.S.A., furthering his credentials. Despite that, he decided to discontinue onward pursuit of state licensing for a reason close to his heart. He opted not to leave his private clinic in Manila because of his thriving practice and increasing numbers of returning clientele.
Moreover, he has trained in Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, intending to upgrade his areas of expertise to be a well-rounded dentist, offering services to patients desiring to achieve aesthetics enhancement, personality improvement, and restoration of diminished chewing functionality. Dr. Liao has always been efficient and practical in his treatment planning and approach. He wanted to perform dental treatments with high predictability of outcome and longevity of the result. Many patients from the Philippines and various countries sought Dr. Liao’s dental expertise, and they only have a pleasant buzz about his dental services.
