DENTAL MISSION FOR THE 5,200 STUDENTS OF DON CARLOS A. GOTHONG MEMORIAL NATIONAL HIGHSCHOOL.
October 29, 2019
The shortest distance between two people is a smile. It is for this reason that the Gothong Clan spearheaded by Jerry Gothong, in collaboration with Amor & Garcia Dental Company, the Philippine Dental Association(PAD)- Cebu Chapter, Alpa Foundation, Inc. and Gothong Southern Foundation, Inc. (GSF) conducted its first-ever dental mission for 5,200 high school students of Cebu City Don Carlos A. Gothong Memorial National High School (CCDDCAGMNHS). This seven-week program started last Sept. 4 and ended Oct. 16, 2019.
The dental mission was fortunate enough to be graced with over 30 dentists and interns ready for their weekly Wednesday service. PDA dentists gave a brief refresher on proper dental hygiene. After which, the students would have their teeth checked and be provided with the necessary prescriptions to ensure its cleanliness, strength, and health. Freebies such as toothbrushes and toothpastes were also given to indeed promote and sustain proper dental care.
To recognize the dental heroes’ ardent passion, relentless service, and unwavering support, a culminating activity was organized for them by the faculty of CCDDCAGMNHS. They were surprised by the beautiful program that was especially prepared just for the team. Thanks to them, these 5,200 students are now more confident to share their smiles to the world.
GSF extends its warmest appreciation to the whole team behind the success of this activity. This activity may have had come to a close but the doors are always open for more programs that touch and make a difference in the lives of these children.
