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.

Message from the President
Greetings of good health & wellness!
Accessibility has become paramount to our lives. The Philippine Dental Association (PDA) is keeping its members thriving in the advent of digital technology. A major leap out of the old ways of doing things and into a world within reach.
PDA within reach intends to break barriers against the present health crisis. Within reach connects every Filipino dental professional to each other and to other stakeholders who are instrumental in navigating through the complexity brought by our professional lives. Within reach promotes groundbreaking responses from PDA leadership in cascading dedicated and lasting impact programs to identify and resolve pressing concerns. Within reach amplifies accessibility to information and resources in supporting PDA members and other partners in the dental profession to continue progressing in challenging situations. Within reach prepares for the impending change while giving importance to working with others to become resilient professionals who help make strong communities. Indeed, there is strength in the simplicity that PDA is within reach.
I hope you join me in articulation of PDA within reach, in words and in deeds. I am sure we will be able to help each other overcome any issue that come our way. There is so much we need to do in the year ahead and I pray that you will continue to trust the PDA because we only wish the best for the dental profession. Should you need a helping hand, the PDA is just “within your reach”.
