She obtained her Master’s Degree in Paediatric Dentistry from the Faculty of Dentistry, The University of Hong Kong (2000). She came home to the Philippines soon after her postgraduate studies and proceeded to teach undergraduate Pediatric Dentistry at the University of the Philippines, Manila (2002-2003) and the University of Perpetual Help DALTA- College of Dentistry (2002-2011). She has since been in full-time private practice at a multispecialty dental office based at the Asian Hospital and Medical Center, the premier tertiary hospital south of Manila. Here, she serves also as Chief of the Pediatric Dentistry Section, as well as the Vice Chairman of the Department of Dental Medicine.

A clinician at heart, Dr Hazel values not only treatment outcomes but the over-all experience of her patients as well. She is a life-long learner who loves to share her knowledge and experience with younger dentists and dental students through lectures and mentoring sessions.

She hopes to be contributory to the formation of a generation of dental practitioners who the young always look forward to visiting.
