On Raising Awareness of Filipinos on Good Oral Health
According to the National Survey on Oral Health in 2018, the country ranked 3rd among Western-Pacific Regions who have high cases of tooth decay and 5 out of 10 Filipinos have gum or periodontal disease.
With this data, we at the private sector, with the help of the Department of Health and other partners, are creating different programs to educate Filipinos all over the country, raising public awareness on the importance of good oral health.
That is why, we diligently remind everyone that prevention, as it relates to health, is about avoiding diseases before it starts. We also enjoin our dental professionals in making sure that good oral health is within reach to all Filipinos possible.
