Dental Mission Visit At The Village
Last Saturday we were very excited to welcome the doctors and nurses of the Millian Dental Office from Davao City. Mr. Hafid P.Millan and his staff volunteered to check the dental status, give some lessons on how to brush the tooth and conduct extractions where necessary. Thank you very much! This service is very important because many children arrive at the village with heavy tooth decay and caries. At the moment, extraction is the only way to help in many cases: Crowns costs between 6.000 and 20.000 Pesos (120 and 400 Euros) and are not covered by the PhilHealth insurance. We’re working on getting the right contacts to provide fillings in order to prevent further caries spread and in the long term extractions as well.
