Esthetic dentistry in the country and the Philippine Academy of Esthetic Dentistry (PAED) are synonymous with growth and progress that it would be impossible to mention one without the other.

Established on July 6, 1996 with the swearing in of the inaugural set of officers, led by Dr. Alfredo Valera, 1st PAED President, the Academy is committed to promoting oral care and enhancing healthy Filipino smiles. The idea for PAED, according to Dr. Valera, was conceived two years earlier when he and Dr. Cheung Lai Chun, third PAED President He said: “We held meetings with like-minded dental professionals to draw up and agree on our Constitution and bylaws, which we finalized by 1995.”

The pool of 84 founding members consisted of graduates of the University of the Philippines, University of the East, Centro Escolar University, De Ocampo University, and even the University of Pangasinan was represented.

In the following years, PAED quickly built a reputation as the go-to authority and font of knowledge and innovation for local esthetic dental professionals. Its core program offering, PAED Esthetic 101 (PAED 101), laid the foundation of learning and eventual advance courses that has attracted and continues to attract eager enrollment. Dr. Alan Roa, 2nd PAED President, launched PAED 101, culled from a series of his lectures, and invited speakers like veneer specialist Dr. Paul Achacoso and periodontics specialist Dr. Rani Reyes to share their skills gained from overseas experience. The first PAED workshop was held at the Pediatric Dentistry Center in Banawe, Quezon City, a combination of theory and hand-on sessions.
