GIVING BACK THE SMILE: 150 Street children benefit from dental mission

By Jem Tumbaga | Resource Mobilization and Communications Officer

MANILA, Philippines-- In line with celebration of National Dental Health Month this February, Caring Hearts Dentistry Society (CHDS) in partnership with Rotary World Help and Rotary Club of Richmond Sunrise conducted a dental mission with 150 street children beneficiaries of Childhope Philippines, February 3.

With the theme, “Bringing Life to Your Smile”,the yearly dental mission event of Caring Hearts Dentistry Society are facilitated by dentists, hygienists, professionals and volunteers from British Columbia, USA and Australia,which aims to increase access to qualityoral healthcare in the Philippines.
 
“This collaboration among the different stakeholders has the potential to help thousands of individuals who are needlessly suffering and compromising their heath due to lack of access to quality dental care services,” says Dr. Danilo Salcedo, President of CHDS.
 
CHDS is committed in bringing the optimal oral health care to people in the Philippines particularly to the underprivileged children.
 
“Our team will set up a dental clinic in every mission in the Philippines to provide dental care and education to hundreds of children in which many have never seen a Dentist and are suffering from serious dental problem,”says CHDS Secretary, Mrs. Nerissa Salcedo.
 
A total of 150 street children and 50 staff of Childhope were given free dental services, including cleaning and tooth extraction.
As the team also wanted to promote awareness in oral health, they did a storytelling to the children, wherein they taught basic dental care such as proper brushing and flossing of teeth, cleaning, and eating a “mouth-healthy” diet.
Meals, toothbrushes and hygiene kits were given to each patient. Meanwhile, antibiotics and pain medicines were provided for free by Childhope’s Mobile Health Clinic (MHC) Project.
 
“Childhope Philippines is thankful to CHDS and the Rotary Club for the wonderful opportunity to promote oral health care to the street children under our care. This is one highly neglected part of health that affects children who are attending school, as well as those attending our literacy sessions,” says Dr. Herbert Quilon Carpio, Executive Director of Childhope.
