Gwendolyn Garcia, all the officers,18 members, Past Presidents, Past Speakers, and delegates to this year’s convention,19 magandang tangali po sa inyong lahat! Welcome to Cebu!20 As I was talking to your Speaker, nabanggit niya 50 years na, actually this is the 51st because21 again since the early 60’s, 1961 to be exact, the first By-laws, set of By-laws were filled up22 and crafted, the policy making and legislative work were actively pursued by the leadership23 of the Philippine Dental Association in more than half a century. Later today, the House of24 Delegates will make a regulatory work even stronger and more attuned to present times. It25 was also around this time for us in Unilab, that Unilab really started working very closely26 with the Filipino dentist, practically in all its 67 years of existence in pharmaceutical27 industry. Well, I am proud again to be standing here once again before you, marching with28 the dignitaries with all the special people of the HOD and the PDA during the entrance29 ceremony, and sitting alongside with these people, and of course we miss the good30 governor.31 This gives me an opportunity once again to force another year of tight partnership with the32 Philippine Dental Association specifically the House of Delegates and if I may just call on the33 people behind this or the people behind me in trying to trim up this activity before you, I34 would like the people to please stand up to be recognized, Mr. Alex Chua, Mon de Castro35 and Carlo of Biomedis, Chona, Leo, Vangie and of course Ms. Joy Ong. Sila po ang katuwang36 natin kaya andito tayong maghapon, hanggang bukas, hanggang Sabado making sure37 everything goes well in the Mid-year Session. And for as long as infections are arrested by38 Amox Dofenal, well of course matutuwa si Alex dito and for as long as bleeding is arrested39 by Hemostan ---- and ----- Happy as we keep our breath always with Swish. Unilab will be by40 HOD’s side through thick and thin ho ito and we certainly recognize the efforts the41 judicious, consciencous and productive policy making activity of the body, for indeed the42 House of Delegates of the Philippine Dental Association is the future of Philippine Dentistry.43 Maraming salamat po! Congratulations on your 51st at magandang hapon po ulit!

Ladies and26 gentlemen, let us all welcome our vagrant PDA President, Dean Arturo “Turing” de Leon.27 DEAN ARTURO DE LEON (PDA President):28 Thank you very much Dr. Cabahug for being truthful, except for the last one. Of course I would like to acknowledge the dignitaries in the table headed by our Hon. Sergio Restauro,29 Executive Governor, our House Speaker, who is very much behind this preparation and30 design for this session together with the organizing committee of this Mid-Year House31 Session, Dr. Clarissa Pe, to our Parliamentarian, Past President, and Past Speaker, Dr. Luis32 Uy, to our corporate partner, Unilab represented by Dr. Chito Sta. Maria, and members of33 PMRD and subsidiary companies, to the Officers of the House of Delegates, to the member34 of the Executive Board, to the men and women of this PDA House of Delegates, to the35 Affiliate Societies Presidents, to the Council of Past Presidents, to the Council of Past36 Speakers, friends, ladies and gentlemen, a pleasant good afternoon to all of you.37 Magandang hapon po sa inyong lahat!38 I prepared 101 slides for this talumpati, however, due to the essence of time, I just reduced39 this one piece speech into 4 demonics. The first one tells about what you have? HOD, House40 of Delegates, now representing it the way you feel for our profession, the way you feel, for41 our association. As I see it right now and as we feel, everyone feels right now HOD would
Minutes of the Meeting PDA-HOD Midyear (1st Plenary Session) PAGE (5) OF Waterfront Hotel & Casino, Lahug, Cebu City September 27, 20121 mean, ”Heavy on Dedication”. To me, everyone, every member of this institution deserves2 the acronyms of all the men and women of Philippine Dentistry. You will not be here if you3 do not have that dedication. In fact, you will use that dedication to share your prospective4 as you define the 4 documents that will depict the collection of Philippine Dentistry.5 Without such dedication, you cannot contribute to this outmost success. Tunay ng inyong6 pakikipagpunyagi ay masasalamin sa dedikasyon. Sa inyong walang sawang7 pakikipagpunyagi sa ating samahan ng mga dentista, HOD, Heavy on Dedication. This again8 is an opportunity to show it, to underscore such feeling towards to our profession, and you9 can only do that if you are going to put the name of this institution again to its highest10 ultimate level. For this institution represents the very essence of what we have and what11 we are enjoying right now, this is the essence of democracy.12 Yes my colleagues the second demonic is HOD, House of Democracy. Democracy would13 actually tell us that everyone who has all equal rights and all privileges, here walang Past14 Presidents, walang Past Speakers, walang President, walang ordinaryong member, lahat15 tayo ay pantay, pantay. Bawat opinion ay mahalaga, bawat pananaw ay isang kontribusyon16 para bumuo ng isang magandang pananaw para sa ating samahan, para sa ating Inang17 Bayan. This democratic process is the penultimate to what has been prepared for you to be18 processed through the efforts of the technical working group and its members headed by19 Dr. Arlissa Aguiluz. What you are going to have right now is the product of their labours,20 their timeless dedication in making sure that everything pertains to the 4 documents that21 we are going to post right now with you and possibly amend, would have its right22 ingredients, right components. We feel that without your approval, everything might not be23 in its proper prospective. The Executive board requirements the process of exercising its24 policy making mandates, it is you the men and women of the House of Delegates which25 should finally put a seal of approval on these 4 documents, and we cannot do this one not26 unless we are united. Yes, we can agree, we can disagree, but once we agree on one thing,27 let us be one to see that same picture in going towards that goal. Magiging maaring28 emotional, maaring maging unheated argumentations, but at the end of the day we all29 belong to one association, we need to define one direction that leads to the third demonic30 HOD, you will be given that lead opportunity to shout to the board that here we are HOD,31 Having one Direction. It is very important for us to see the same picture as we move as to32 unity towards that goal, but we can only do that one if we first have the panoramic view on33 everything and of course with due respect to everyone. Walang mali o walang tamang34 pananaw. Ito po ay isang kusang pagbibigay ng pahalaga sa ating mga ginagawa bilang35 dentista at bilang kasapi ng samahan. Bigyan po natin ng paggalang ang bawat pananalita36 ng ating kasamahan. In the end we will be going home with the thought that we37 contributed towards a meaningful journey of our association.38 Tita Precy, you gave a very nice demonic of Cebu I would like to use that one Cebu demonic39 to put everything in its prospective in abbreviation C-E-B-U, Come Everyone Be United.40 Good afternoon to all of you. Marami pong salamat!41 DR. PRECIOSA TANAGON:42 Maraming salamat po, Dean Arturo De Leon! And now we would like to call on our Speaker43 of the House of Delegates to give her own message for all of us, a round of applause for Dr.44 Clarissa Jane Pe.45 DR. CLARISSA JANE PE (HOD Speaker):46 It’s been going over and over my head the many things that I want to say today and in the47 end I can only say a few words. First of all, I would like to acknowledge our partner who has
Minutes of the Meeting PDA-HOD Midyear (1st Plenary Session) PAGE (6) OF Waterfront Hotel & Casino, Lahug, Cebu City September 27, 20121 been there through thick and thin. Thank you from the bottom of our heart, Mr. Chito Sta.2 Maria and United Laboratories! To our Dean, to our President for his support, his push for3 positive change, his inspiring criticism for things that you have yet to accomplish, we thank4 you for that, Sir! To our Parliamentary, Dr. Luis Uy, for bringing us back to the right road, we5 still have a long way to go, but yet we will not be alone, we will all be together. And for our6 Keynote Speaker, a doctor in profession, a DMD specialist, the Chair of Provincial Board of7 the province of Cebu, Dr. Sergio Restauro, and to all the men and women of the Executive8 Board, you will be acknowledged individually later in the roll call, to the Past President and9 Past Speakers, I am humbled by your presence because in the 50 years of existence of the10 House of Delegates we haven’t had this number of Past Speakers and Past Presidents in one11 mid-year session. Thank you very much! To the delegates who are called here today, we12 thank you from the bottom of our heart for responding to our invitation! A few months ago13 during the annual session in November 2011, there was a strong clamour for mid-year14 session to be held in Cebu, it was a big challenge, and it is a big challenge to bring you here.15 We beg your kind indulgence, our apologies for whatever little inconveniences that you may16 have experienced! There are things that are beyond our control, we can ask only for kind17 understanding with that. We are all here called for a mission. 50 years of existence of House18 of Delegates is something that we owe to our Past Speakers, Past Presidents, all the men19 and women who had been here also like us today seated with one goal to make the20 Philippine Dental Association achieve its goal in proving dental help to the nation through21 our respective practices, through our individual Chapters where we come from. There is so22 much in the history of the House of Delegates, today, we start another 50 years. By then,23 most of us may not be here anymore, but let us leave a legacy. I am challenging you. Let us24 leave a legacy that will guide those who will come after us, after all this is our house. Let us25 put it in order so that those who will follow our footsteps will find it in order. Let us be26 united in our direction, let us all understand that we can all be one in the achievement of27 our goals that we have set. It is not an easy task to amend, to change the 4 documents: the28 Constitution and By-laws, the Code of Dental Ethics, the Republic Act 9484, and the29 establishment of the Standard of Care. It is a challenge to all of us. It is not just a challenge30 to the House of Delegates Officers but for each and every one of us who are here today. We31 have prepared our committees; our Technical Working Group has laboured. I urge you to32 keep an open mind, think not of your own personal interest, but for the good of the33 Philippine Dental Association.34 Tomorrow, we will break the whole group into 3 clusters. Here, we’ll be able to find a35 cluster for you to go. It doesn’t mean that you will only stay with one cluster. We have set36 aside 2 hours per cluster and we will rotate. The documents have been sent to you37 electronically, it was “kinda” ambitious on our part to go electronic, but nowadays we38 cannot afford to spend on paper printing and shipping these documents and it will be too39 heavy for you to carry over here in Cebu in that way, long after you go back to your own40 respective Chapters you will still have a copy and it can be forwarded to your respective41 members.42 Tomorrow, we will have an open meeting. That is why we invited you to bring your laptops,43 your PD and we would just like to encourage everyone to refrain from going into social44 networking. The PDA spent so much money to bring you here, if you have other business45 we will understand but kindly step out from the session hall. We are here to legislate and46 this is serious matter. Do not be offended if we find that you are working other ways and47 you are using the networking instrument, we will kindly ask you to step out of the Session48 Hall. It is not a joke, the committee have laboured so hard and with that I would like to49 acknowledge our Technical Working Group, as well as the Officers, the appointed and50 elected Officers of the House of Delegates to please rise. Those who have laboured to make51 this, without you, thank you very much! Without the dedication of these men and women
Minutes of the Meeting PDA-HOD Midyear (1st Plenary Session) PAGE (7) OF Waterfront Hotel & Casino, Lahug, Cebu City September 27, 20121 who are here as your servant leaders, please let us treat each other the respect that we all2 deserve. They are not your personal servants. We are one. We have the same calling and I3 urge you if you have any concerns, let us not make a big fun out of it. You know things are4 not perfect all the time as much as we are not also perfect.5 And tomorrow on the very first hour, you will be broken into clusters. We will have one6 cluster outside this hall, one cluster will stay here and the other cluster will stay in the7 Mediterranean room. We have our Chairs; we have our facilitators, our consultants, and the8 technical committee. During the plenary at the end of 6 hours you will convene, whatever9 will be the output of the clusters we will present it in the plenary for the approval of the10 body. So we urge you tonight if you have a chance to go over the documents that we have11 e-mailed to you please find time to study them. We will ask you to put your opinion on12 certain provisions of the Constitution that needs amendments. To save time, we will only13 have limited discussions in the clusters to a few people. Everybody is welcome to put in14 their contributions by writing your opinion or recommendation in the beta cards that you15 will find in the cluster. Then the committees, the Technical Working Group will then16 summarize it and present it in the plenary. If you have recommendations that were not17 identified by the cluster, please you are still welcome to make your revision, but we also ask18 you to respect the decision of the committee Chair if they think that your recommendations19 are not as urgent as they would mean then, we thank you in advance for your kind20 understanding!21 And with that I would like to personally thank Ms. Joy Ong for the sacrifice, for quite22 understanding, for the patience that she has extended to the working committees, and also23 to different partners, Unilab, Westmont, Biomedis, Innovitelle, these are sponsors on24 tomorrows Fellowship.25 Tomorrow at the end of a long day, we will also party hard and enjoy with our Luau Retro26 theme and with that ladies and gentlemen as I have said there is so much to say, but there27 is not much time to say. Thank you and have a pleasant afternoon!28 DR. PRECIOSA TANAGON:29 Thank you very much Madam Speaker. May we request to please remain on the center30 stage and may we invite our PDA Dean Arturo De Leon to join the Speaker to award the31 plaque to the PDA-HOD life members.32 DR. GERARDO CABAHUG:33 Our first awardee is the Immediate Past President of the PDA, Dr. Roberto M. Tajonera, Life34 time member.35 DR. PRECIOSA TANAGON:37 (Read the Plaque of the life time member to Dr. Roberto M. Tajonera). Congratulations, Dr.38 Tajonera!39 DR. GERARDO CABAHUG:40 Our next awardee for Life Time Member is no other than our Immediate Past Speaker of the41 House of Delegates, ladies and gentlemen, Col. Ramon Hebron.

We thank once again Dr. Primo Gonzales, Honorary11 Speaker of the House of Delegates.12 Ok, as we now move on to the most important part of our Opening ceremony, may we call13 on HOD Past Speaker, who incidentally is the first woman HOD Speaker, a round of14 applause, ladies and gentlemen to Dr. Libertad Nolido who will do the honor of introducing15 our Keynote Speaker.16 DR. LIBERTAD NOLIDO:17 Thank you, Dr. Precy! Good looking gentlemen and beautiful women dignitaries at the18 presidential table and sub-presidential table. Past and Present Officers of both branches the19 executive and the legislative of the Philippine Dental Association, fellow dentists, good20 afternoon.21 We request that today, we will have with us Cebu’s pride itself, the first woman governor22 with 443 year history of the province of Cebu, Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia. She is in Manila with23 some business, urgent business. However, she sent a representative who is equally as24 dedicated government service worker as she is. He is a medical doctor, specializing in Ears,25 Eyes, Nose and Throat, and likewise serving as a Board Member of the first district of the26 province of Cebu, and who knows he might also become the governor himself? Only God27 knows. Let’s put our hands together for Doctor, the Honorable Board Member, Dr. Sergio28 Bacus Restauro.29 HON. SERGIO B. RESTAURO:30 Please sit down! To Dr. Libertad Nolido, thank you for that wonderful introduction. I31 appreciate it very much. To Dr. Clarissa Jane Pe, and to Mr. Ramoncito O. Sta. Maria of the32 United Laboratories, to incumbent PDA President of 2012, Dean Arturo De Leon, and to the33 active officers and members of the House of Delegates, our participating dental34 practitioners who came from the different provinces and cities, welcome and to other35 friends, guests. Maayong hapon, sa inyong tanan!36 At this very moment I am very thankful and flattered to have been asked to speak in this37 momentous gathering in lieu of our beloved Governor, the Honorable Gwen F. Garcia, who38 is currently undertaking a number of previous commitments, in line with her local functions39 as responsible Chief Executive of the province of Cebu. Nevertheless, she is conveying her40 great pride and honor for the reason that your prestigious organization chose to hold the
Minutes of the Meeting PDA-HOD Midyear (1st Plenary Session) PAGE (9) OF Waterfront Hotel & Casino, Lahug, Cebu City September 27, 20121 51st Philippine Dental Association, House of Delegates Mid-Year Session in our beloved2 province. Remember, it is more fun in Cebu.3 First of all, she wants to express her full support in this event and granted me this unique4 opportunity to speak before you in her behalf. I would gladly say that I am overwhelmed5 with so much joy and pleasure for I am speaking in front of very noble professionals, who6 are very vigilant and have great concern in maintaining the present high professional7 standard of dental profession, and it is always a practice that leadership will always be in8 harmony with the persons concerned: the dental health providers both here and abroad.9 Again I truly realize the fact that each one of you has temporarily left your family and work.10 For some of you came here from very distant places. You came here not just because you11 want to find or rekindle friendships, which for me is also a good intent, however, if you have12 come for more noble cause that is to share each other experiences and expertise in order to13 cope with the dental health care services in this country in a higher, if not in a highest level14 of standard. I would also like to humbly state that I have also done my part as member of15 the Sanguniang Panglalawigan in the province of Cebu concerning improvement and16 upliftment of health care by passing legislations that I would someday listen to our people17 particularly in maintaining good health services and facilities. Moreover, I continuously18 advocate and fully support all the provisions and guidelines set forth by the Department of19 Health in providing quality health care services for our fellow constituents. Incidentally,20 aside from being member of the provincial board, this representation, also served as a21 community Chairman of public health and social services in the province of Cebu. My22 fervent wish is that due to our continuing efforts, the government and private sector will23 come up with a long term plan, strategy and system that would create and join impact that24 would deem not only the entire health provider but also its recipients as well. To all our25 dear delegates and participants may you fully achieve what you have been expecting for26 these three (3) days activities and I expect camaraderie within you to continue to flourish27 and to reach for the highest standard in serving our people. All these will remain in your28 hearts evermore. Lastly, I would like to commend all the men and women who have29 contributed so much of their time and efforts in order to make this event possible and30 successful one. I hope your stay in Cebu will be productive, pleasant and favourable one.31 God bless us all, daghang salamat sa inyong tanan.32 DR. PRECIOSA TANAGON:33 Thank you very much, Honourable Sergio Restauro for relating the message of the Governor34 to all of us here today! Now we would like to request you to please occupy the center stage35 and we would like to call our Speaker of the House of Delegates, as well as our PDA36 President to award the Token of Appreciation for our Keynote Speaker.

If I may familiarize you and go you through the
Minutes of the Meeting PDA-HOD Midyear (1st Plenary Session) PAGE (21) OF Waterfront Hotel & Casino, Lahug, Cebu City September 27, 20121 process by which we arrived at the TWG as it is properly called or as we are called by our2 leader who actually envisioned and planned all of these thinkers with guts.3 So the Technical Working Group was presented and approved as an AD hoc committee to4 the Executive Board on January early this year. It is actually envisioned and a project of our5 incumbent PDA President, Dr. Arturo De Leon, and his vision is to document and amend all6 four (4) documents effective in our practice of profession and our PDA in general. Apat po7 ang dokumento na kailangan natin na sunud-sunod at sabay-sabay na talakayin, sana ang8 natirang mga oras at araw ay ating harapin kasama po dito ang Code of Ethics, ang Republic9 Act 9484, ang ating PDA Constitution and By-laws, at ang hindi pa successful na natalakay na10 Standard of Care and Guidelines to put into practice in dentistry.11 Yours truly was very generously approved by the Executive Board as Chair of the TWG in12 March of 2012. Among the objectives of our Technical Working Group Clusters as we call13 them is to formulate the Standard of Practice or put into practice in dentistry or then we14 call it the TGCD. This is headed by someone whom I am proud to admit as one of the rising15 stars and icons of Philippine Dentistry particularly in the field of academe, my very own16 dean at the UP College of Dentistry, Dean Vicente Medina III, Sir, please stand up to be17 recognized.18 Hindi ho naging madali ang pagtalakay ni Dean Medina sa Standard of Care. Alam naman19 natin na ang SOC or Standard ay siyang pinakamabilis na pamantayan at pamamaraan para20 tayo ay husgahan kung tayo man ay nasasakdal sa isang husgado, and yet noon ako po ay21 inutusan ng ating President, Dr. Arturo De Leon na umattend ng Department of Health22 meeting, ang unang una pong hiningi sa akin ng DOH ay nasaan na ang Standard of Care ng23 Dentistry. Ako po ay halos manliit sa aking upuan noong meeting na iyon kaharap po ang24 mga fields of medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, veterinary med. At iba pang mga25 allied na professions, lahat po sila ay may sinusundan na Standard of Care maliban po sa26 ating propesyon. We claim to already to be in 100 years of dentistry in the Philippines ay27 walang maipakita ni isang pahina kung ano ba ang ating mga pamantayan at parang bang28 sinasabi ikaw ay isang magaling na dentista na tuloy na sumusunod sa mga serbisyo ng isang29 mahusay na dentista, wala po tayo nito. Pinaki-usapan po natin si Dr. Vicente Medina30 upang bumuo sa pamamagitan ng inyong tulong ng Standard of Care. Remember, the SOC31 will not cater to the specialist, iyan po ang aking pinakadiin-diin ngayon pa lamang. Ang32 ating SOC complete with guidelines in the practice of dentistry ay kailangan ng magtugon sa33 mga pangangailangan ng general dentists. Ano ang dapat gawin ng isang general dentist34 para masabi na safe ang kanyang practice of dentistry, iyon po ang tatalakayin niya sa35 kanyang cluster.36 Aside from our objectives to correct the provision of RA 9484 that are particularly37 erroneous katulad ng mga term of office na hindi akma sa limang examiner, mga definition38 of terms na kung titingnan natin ay hindi naman talaga tumutugon sa dapat na talakayin at39 iba pa. Naiintindihan ko noon, noong ako ay naging Speaker of the House limang taon na po40 ang nakalilipas na itong Dental Law ng 2007 ay biglang binagsak sa atin ng ating PRC at41 humihingi ng Implementing Rules and Regulations. Wala naman po tayong nagawa noong42 mga panahon na yon kung hind gumawa ng IFR sa pinakamainit at pinakamahusay na43 paraan ng ating nakayanan, pero limang taon na po yon, that was five (5) long years ago and44 who were our legal advisers then? One of them is, Sen. Joey Lina. Limang taon is limang45 taon. We are now entitled to agitate as professional organization to change and amend RA46 9484 and the Code of Ethics that includes if it no longer serves our needs particularly on the47 issue of integration. Every single day that we are here, existing as accredited professional
Minutes of the Meeting PDA-HOD Midyear (1st Plenary Session) PAGE (22) OF Waterfront Hotel & Casino, Lahug, Cebu City September 27, 20121 organization we are not actually able to implement the full measure of the law to the intent2 that is indebted. Bakit po? Hindi ho tayo talaga integrated number 1.3 (2) Kaya ba natin to integrate di ba? So andito po ang ating mga kasamahan mula sa hanay4 ng dental technologist pinangungunahan ni Dr. Makoto Obayashi. Sir, I wish to recognize5 your group, can you please all stand up they are here as observers and participants. Ang6 dami po nila sariling gastos po nila yan. Sila ay nandidito bilang commitment nila na7 makipagisa, tagapagsundo sa ating mga dentist. Nangluluklok din ako at the same time,8 Madam Speaker, kasi nadidiyan po tayong mga dentist at kahit andidiyan po ang grupo ng9 dental technologist ay hindi pa din natin maiimplement ang RA 9484 in terms of integration10 dahil wala ang mga dental hygienist. Dapat ho nating isipin mga kasama ko dito sa House11 dapat talaga tayong mag-integrate? That question I will leave up to you. Remember, kami12 pong mga cluster leaders ninyo ay hindi nandito para pilitin kayo na sumangayon sa ano13 mang legend na aming ihaharap rather, we are your voice to the PDA and to the14 government. You in turn as CD and OD should be voices of your Chapters and Affiliates15 society. Do not take this task that we are about to do tomorrow very likely. If you do, I really16 want tayo pa rin sa pancitan pag ito ay hindi natin naayos sa ating kagustuhan. This is our17 chance now five (5) years otherwise, we will continue all in all that we are not implementing18 the full measure of the law and PRC is already looking at us at why we are not able to do so.19 We are not accepting any excuses or alibis for that matter.20 Another objective is to add provisions that would benefit both public and accredited21 profession organization of dentists. Ito yung tungkol sa mga new provisions, so kung wala22 doon sa ihaharap namin sa inyo yung nasa isipan ninyo at nasa konsiyensya ninyo ay maaari23 kayong magsalita, di ba? Sabi nga nung teacher at yung ating mga lecturers hindi kayo24 nandito para mag-init ang inyong mga upuan, you are not bench warmers here. I wish that25 you will open up your mind, your heart and your mouth in order to speak otherwise we26 would not hear what you have to say. Wala namang maling opinion, ok lang ho kung hindi27 kayo makapag English ng tama, who cares, it is the thought and the concept and the28 substance and the thought that counts not the actual words that you use, but rather the29 thought that you’ve said with sincerity, honesty and above all with integrity. Kalimutan30 natin ang mga personal na motibo pagtayo ay nahahanap ng resolution kung maaari lang po31 ito ang aking pakiusap.32 To revise the Code of Ethics, yan din po ang kailangan nating harapin. Ano ba ang inyong33 panukala tungkol sa advertising na yan. Sino naman ang nagsabi na ikaw ay nagte-34 testimonial para sa isang dental product. Pag ikaw ba ay nanggamot at may nirecommend35 sa inyo na brand na toothpaste na ito dahil sa inyong masugit na paniniwala ito ang the36 best, yaon ho ba ay nagco-constitute ng testimonial and are you in fact being unethical?37 Yaon po ang aking ibig sabihin na dapat siguro tingnan hindi lang naayon sa current 201238 definition of terms, kung ano ang ethical and kung ano ang unethical? Keep an open mind39 about this.40 Ito po ang sulyap kung papaano natin io-organisa ang ating Technical Working Group,41 dalawa po ang aking hinahawakan diyan dahil iisa lang naman ho yung dokumentong yon.42 Ang akin hong cluster is Standard of Care and Good Clinical Practice of Dentistry, na aking43 nabanggit ay pinangungunahan ng aking dekanong UP College of Dentistry Dr. Vicente44 Medina III, kung walang the Third hindi daw siya yon kaya kailangan bangitin yung the Third45 and of course the Cluster PDA Constitutions and By-laws headed by an icon and a personal46 idol of mine in Philippine Dentistry, Dr. Diampo Lim, please stand up. Kasama po ni Dean47 Lim ang isang pang napakatunay nagtamo ng karangalan para sa ating Philippine Dental48 Association ang unang PDA President na nakakamit ng Accredited Professional Organization
Minutes of the Meeting PDA-HOD Midyear (1st Plenary Session) PAGE (23) OF Waterfront Hotel & Casino, Lahug, Cebu City September 27, 20121 best award ang ating Dr. Jess Tumaneng. We are very honoured to be with us, Sir. Salamat2 po sa inyo!3 Ano ho ba ang ating mga stratehiya upang tayo ay makabuo ng ating dokumentong ito? 3C4 ang ating gagawin (1) we must consult the proper stakeholders and that means identify who5 the stakeholders are? Kasama at kabilang kayo diyan, kayong mga PDA members, you6 represent your members from your Chapter from your area of practice, kasama ng ating7 mga Affiliates dami, daming Affiliates. Ano ba ang inyong mga concerns? Try to voice out,8 auxiliary, hygienist, and technologist and in my case in the Republic Act 9484, yes, I have to9 consult the unlicensed dental graduates. Dahil sa kanilang hindi matapos tapos na hinagpis10 tungkol sa refresher course na yan, so kasama po sila sa stakeholders for the Republic Act11 9484.12 The second scene, concur or not concur with the proposed amendments offered by each13 participants. Ang bilin pong maigi ng ating Speaker of the House, do it with courtesy, hindi14 po tayo kailangang magbastusan dito sa House of Delegates para lang maipadinig or para15 lang maiparating ang inyong nais maparating, you can do so calmly, gently, using the right16 words. Please let us observe professional courtesy with each other at all times.17 And lastly, the House of Delegates must concur with all the amendments. This is the18 particular power that is given to us by our Constitution and By-laws; no one can take it away19 from us, tayo lang po ang pu-pwedeng magpalit ng Constitution and By-laws at pag nabuo20 po natin ang SOC at saka ang amended RA 9484 tayo po ang magfo-forward nito sa ating21 PRC. The Mid-year Session is only but one venue wherein we can do this. Sabi nga ng ating22 Speaker matapos nating magcomment lahat ito ay ating iipunin at bubuuin at ilalagay sa23 tamang anyo at ito ay ating isusumite sa ating Executive Board na siya namang maghahatid24 sa PRC sa DOH at saka sa kinauukulang pang ahensiya ng gobyerno. Ang mga accredited25 Affiliates natin, I asked you if you have time tonight please consult your members regarding26 your declaration. If you want a particular concern especially in the Standard of Care, I27 understand na kayo ay mga dalubhasa sa inyong mga siyensa, pero tandaan po natin yung28 mga dental practitioners na hindi kasing dalubhasa ninyo, does not necessarily make them29 bad dentists if they did not do the techniques that you do? If they did not use the same30 equipment that you do, are they necessarily doing bad dentistry? So although almost all of31 you are specialists, keep in mind, the Standard of Care is for the general practitioner. Diyan32 ho natin aasahan ang ating mga ODs and CDs ng mga GT and if I present the PDA RGTs,33 insist and demand for your rights and privilege. Magbaliktaktakan tayo dito malinaw at34 maliwanag para sa ikabubuti ng lahat, and this will always subject, as the Speaker said, to35 the usual debate and discussion during the House of Delegates. All our concerns will also be36 published in our PDA website headed by our PDA Website Master Dr. Charlie Atienza. I37 wonder if he has arrived here in Cebu City. He will be available as a reference person to our38 Chapter and Affiliates ODs and CDs should we have any concern about posting on the PDA39 website. Ok and that is it, that is all my report, Madam Speaker. Where is Madam Speaker?40 DR. EMILIANO YUMANG (HOD Past Speaker/OD Agusan del Norte Chapter):41 Will the Speaker or the Deputy Protempore entertain? Speaker Protempore must entertain42 my interpolation supposedly.43 DR. MARIA ARLISSA AGUILUZ (HOD Past Speaker/OD Bulacan Chapter):44 Thank you, Madam Speaker Protempore that ends my report.
Minutes of the Meeting PDA-HOD Midyear (1st Plenary Session) PAGE (24) OF Waterfront Hotel & Casino, Lahug, Cebu City September 27, 20121 DR. JOAN CARBONELL (HOD Speaker Protempore/OD Muntinlupa City):2 Dr. Yumang?3 DR. EMILIANO YUMANG (HOD Past Speaker/OD Agusan del Norte Chapter):4 My interpolation Madam Speaker Protempore, the Chairman just made mention at5 tinanong kung payag ba tayong mag-integrate itong prinesenta kanina. I would just like to6 ask the said Officer, the Chairperson, the approved resolution is way back in Fontana, May7 29, 2011. Approved Resolution No. 8, Resolution bringing the Philippine Dental Association8 to perform its insurgents, to perform its ministerial duty to integrate the National9 Integrated Association of the duly licensed of the member of the Dental Technology and10 Dental Hygienist Profession as mandated in Sec. 30 Republic Act 9484. That is why I don’t11 know why the Chairperson is asking payag ba kayong i-integrate? It is mandated in that12 Board Resolution, Madam Speaker Protempore.13 DR. MARIA ARLISSA AGUILUZ (HOD Past Speaker/OD Bulacan Chapter):14 May I answer the question Madam Speaker?15 DR. CLARISSA JANE PE (HOD Speaker):16 Yes, Madam Chair, please answer!17 DR. MARIA ARLISSA AGUILUZ (HOD Past Speaker/OD Bulacan Chapter):18 I think the question of the Former Speaker strikes the very core of why we are doing this at19 all when he gently reminded me that there was indeed an approved resolution in the House20 way back last year, exactly the concerns, Sir. It is time now to review, are we really able to21 integrate? Because it is now time to take a look inside you and mentally exercise if we were22 able to interpret the law or should the law be interpreted to serve us. Iyon lang po ang ating23 question na itinatapon. I do not need to question the men of the House, the will of the24 House has already been expressed, what I am saying this is our chance to amend the Dental25 law. We do not have to sit still for another 5 years or 6 years before we agitate and move as26 a body in order to demand the changes due to us as a professional. I hope I am quite clear.27 DR. CLARISSA JANE PE (HOD Speaker):28 Thank you, Madam Chair! Dr. Yumang?29 DR. EMILIANO YUMANG (HOD Past Speaker/OD Agusan del Norte Chapter):30 Yes, to rebut.31 DR. CLARISSA JANE PE (HOD Speaker):32 Please proceed!33 DR. EMILIANO YUMANG (HOD Past Speaker/OD Agusan del Norte Chapter):34 As I have said, it is mandated, ministerial duty, it is a notification for the PDA per the PRC’s35 order and this has been right or wrong for us to do this, but the House or in Congress about36 this. That is all Madam Speaker.
Minutes of the Meeting PDA-HOD Midyear (1st Plenary Session) PAGE (25) OF Waterfront Hotel & Casino, Lahug, Cebu City September 27, 20121 DR. CLARISSA JANE PE (HOD Speaker):2 Thank you, Dr. Yumang! I think our Chair understands the point that is being raised by our3 Past Speaker. Madam Chair, could you please continue the presentation or?4 DR. MARIA ARLISSA AGUILUZ (HOD Past Speaker/OD Bulacan Chapter):5 Madam Chair, I am done with the presentation.6 DR. CLARISSA JANE PE (HOD Speaker):7 Ok, Dr. Lim?8 DR. DIAMPO LIM (PDA Past President/HOD Past Speaker):9 Thank you, Madam Speaker. Just to answer the question of our good friend, Past Speaker,10 Dr. Yumang. That is the reason why we are going to have a cluster for tomorrow. It is11 because of the fact that we cannot do anything for the reason that the law states clearly12 that the dental technologist and dental hygienist will be integrated with the Philippine13 Dental Association, and so therefore, the reason why we are here is to find out how we will14 be able to integrate them? The solution that we are going to find out, how to integrate15 them? Are we going to integrate them in the same manner with that of the dental16 profession or whatever it is? That is now the role of the clustering of the committee that is17 initiated by the President of the Philippine Dental Association. Thank you, Madam18 Chairman!19 DR. CLARISSA JANE PE (HOD Speaker):20 Thank you very much, Dr. Lim! Now that the Chair has presented how the Technical21 Working Group was created and what it aim to achieve during this Mid-year Session, I22 would like to solicit for the acceptance of the presentation of our Technical Working Group23 Chair.

ARIEL GO (OD Kalookan City Chapter):4 Ma’am, you mentioned a while ago regarding the implementing rules and regulations the5 House did sometime in 2007. Could there be a possibility na maretrieve natin yung file na6 yon? Kasi, I think we’ve worked for that for 3 to 4 days. The implementing rules that was7 not accepted by the PRC.

MARIA ARLISSA AGUILUZ (HOD Past Speaker/OD Bulacan Chapter):10 May I answer Madam Speaker the delegate?11 DR. CLARISSA JANE PE (HOD Speaker):12 Yes, Madam Chair you may.13 DR.

I still have to thank you after all these years. I would try my best to look for my files, Sir16 or the then House Secretary, Thea Peralta, but please be informed that since 2007 I have17 undergone several floodings already in Bulacan particularly Ondoy and Habagat. I will do my18 best to retrieve the file. I hope you can try to retrieve yours and perhaps we can sit together19 and try to work out, but that is a pleasant problem Mr. Delegate, our task really is to go20 through the entire Republic Act, the existing law as is, correct what is needed to be21 corrected and you know that there are a lot to be corrected. Yung mga nanggagalaiti sa22 inis, sa kamalian ng dental law na ito, now is your chance, speak out please and we will all23 do our best.24 DR. CLARISSA JANE PE (HOD Speaker):25 Thank you, Madam Chair!

Minutes of the Meeting PDA-HOD Midyear (1st Plenary Session) PAGE (28) OF Waterfront Hotel & Casino, Lahug, Cebu City September 27, 20121 stand?
