Dental Mission in Inayawan!

August 20, 2019 0 Comments

On Sunday August 11, the Rotary Club of Cebu East conducted its first dental mission of RY 2019-2020, in the barangay of Inayawan in Cebu City.


RC Cebu East was assisted by our Rotaractors, graduate students in dentistry from Southwestern University, led by Dr. Ann Perolino. The transportation body INTRASCO also helped with organizing the venue and making sure everything was ready and in good condition for the mission.


The Rotary Club of Campbelltown, Australia also continued its assistance in helping us defray the costs of the mission!


Nearly 300 individuals received expert care, including such procedures as:

  • Dental consultation
  • Dental cleaning
  • Oral prophylaxis
  • Dental Fillings
  • Tooth extractions


Special thanks to our president, Joop van Kessel, and First Lady Racquel van Kessel for their splendid efforts on this mission, which we are sure will be the first of many successful endeavors!


Here are some pictures from the mission:
