All smiles! Mel Aguilar kicks off Dental Health Month celebration


Las Piñas Mayor Mel Aguilar’s week started with a smile as she kicked off the celebration of Dental Health month in the city.

Aguilar grinned from ear to ear as several school children visited her at the city hall grounds to show their appreciation for Las Piñas’ free dental health program.

The students are given regular check-ups and treatment for free by the dentists in the different health centers located in Las Piñas City.

During the program, the children gave Aguilar roses as an advance gift for Valentine’s Day.

Joining the mayor at the event were City Health Officer Dr. Ferdinand Eusebio and dentists of the various health centers of Las Piñas City.

National Dental Health Month is celebrated every February by virtue of Presidential Proclamation 559.
