Kids International Dental Services (KIDS) at Laura Vicuna, Pinama Napindan

Giving brighter smiles to the Taguig youth

Volunteers from Kids International Dental Services (KIDS), in partnership with the Taguig City Medical Assistance Office, held a Dental Mission last February 19 at Laura Vicuna, Pinama Napindan.

Kids International Dental Services (KIDS) is a non-profit, volunteer organization that was founded in 2009. KIDS is an ever-expanding organization of dentists, students, and various professionals working toward improving the oral health of impoverished children worldwide.

KIDS strives to provide pro-bono dental care to impoverished children in developing countries, providing a platform for young dental professionals to perform community service worldwide.

During the event, students numbering 300 were given free fluoride treatment, tooth extraction, and oral checkups.

They were also educated on the importance of brushing their teeth regularly to prevent cavities.

The program is part of the National Dental Health Month Celebration which aims to strengthen public awareness on the importance of practicing proper oral health care. It encourages dentists, students, relevant government agencies, and professional organizations to reach out to more people with no access to dental services, especially those living in the countryside.

Mayor Lani Cayetano graced the event to welcome the volunteer organization.
