On Charisma Cacho


“I have always believed that God equips you with everything you need to fulfil His perfect plan for your life,” avers Top 3 Ranker and OLFU’s own, Dr. Charisma M.Cacho.


That Dentistry was not Charisma’s first choice for a career comes as a surprise. In fact, it was her family that prodded her towards the program. Charisma began her first days of college, carefree and somewhat slacking-off. But as she reached the Pre-Clinical stage, she met dentistry professors who inspired and challenged her abilities. From then on, she resolved to do her best. “It’s the set of the sail that determines the direction of your boat,” became Charisma’s mantra; the driver in setting goals for her own self, not to simply pass her courses, but to really learn from them.


As Charisma transitioned to Clinical Dentistry, more struggles and trials came her way. Dealing with patients, managing time, seeking clinical instructors’ approvals were but a few of the things she had to be good at. To her, it was quite stressful, but also fun. By then, she had learned to love everything about Dentistry and knew she wanted to succeed not just for herself but also for the people whom she loved.


Looking back at the several years of college, Dr.Cacho now knows that some things in life must take time so as to bear sweeter fruit. Never give up when exhaustion and discouragement set in, she shares. Charisma also adds, “Always believe nothing is impossible with a great God, and that every sincere prayer is answered.”


Being a Dentist began as a seemingly unachievable dream for Charisma. Today, she is embracing her place as the nation’s Top 3 finisher in the board exams. That’s because Charisma told herself not to settle for anything less than what she could possibly be.


This joyful development also comes as a fitting gift as the College of Dentistry celebrates its 20th year foundation anniversary as one of the budding and top-performing dental schools in the country.
