Escolarian Dental Clinicians Teach Oral Hygiene to Makati Kids
May 20, 2019
With the aim to promote good oral hygiene, the CEU Makati dental clinicians conducted a community outreach program to the young children of Brgy. Valenzuela, Makati City last October 7, 2018.
The Dentistry students went to the said barangay to teach the Makati children the importance of oral hygiene. The Escolarians emphasized the habit of taking care of their teeth at an early age by properly brushing their teeth. They also did topical fluoride applications on selected kids and some adults.
With one goal in mind, the dental clinicians reminded the participants that going to the dentist is not expensive, but ignorance is. As they say, prevention is better than cure. The event ended with the dental clinicians giving free toothbrushes, toothpastes and toys to the kids.
