The Christian Medical Dental and Paramedical Society (CMDPS) of Bataan District hosted a dental health awareness seminar for children at the Balanga Congregation’s house of worship on January 22, 2023.
In the said seminar, Dr. Pauline James Jara-Reyes, a dentist from Balanga Congregation, taught the children with their parents the proper way of brushing their teeth, and other ways to maintain good oral health. After the seminar, fluoride treatment was done to the children and toothbrushes were distributed to them.
“It is vital to teach the children the proper way of brushing their teeth, as well as identifying to them foods which they should eat with moderation, for them to maintain good oral health until they grow up,” said Dr. Jara-Reyes.
“As parents, we are grateful to the Church Administration for initiating activities wherein the children continue to learn proper ways of taking care of their body,” Dr. Jazzie Ramirez, a CMDPS member from Balanga Congregation, stated. “We are happy for the Church Administration is concerned even with our physical well-being.”—With reports from INC News Section
