Daycare teachers, pupils and parents were invited and they were oriented about the importance of proper hygiene which includes the regular brushing of our teeth. The children were also shown the proper way of brushing to make sure that their teeth are thoroughly cleaned.
After the mass brushing, the children were also given fluoride and free brushing kits. In his message, City Administrator Dr. Danda N. Juanday emphasized on the role of the parents and teachers in educating the children not just of proper brushing but of overall hygiene care as well.
"Our mouth is the gateway wherein most of the nutrients that our body needs enter. So we must learn how to take care of it in order for us sto stay healthy and strong", Dr. Juanday said.
A series of dental health promotion activities are all set for the whole month of February.
