Dental Mission to Punta Princesa

March 6, 2018


On Sunday March 4, the Rotary Club of Cebu East conducted a successful Dental Mission in Punta Princesa, Cebu City.

We were assisted in the planning by Ms. Grasya Baquero, Barangay Councilor for Punta Princesa, and Cebu East Past President Elias Baquero. We are very grateful for their assistance!

We also received significant financial assistance from the Rotary Club of Campbelltown, Australia.

As always, the dental mission was splendidly conducted by Dr. Wilbert Uykingtian of Cebu East and Dr. Anne Perolino from Southwestern University, along with our Rotaractors, who are graduating dental students at Southwestern.

Types of procedures included:

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

In total, 216 individuals received much needed treatment. We are delighted to have helped the fine people of Punta Princesa!

Many kind thanks to all who contributed to this successful mission.

Here are some pictures from the mission:
