Ph dental health OK

by Alex Romeo R. Fernandez

DAGUPAN CITY, Jan. 17 -- “It’s pretty good.”

This was the description of Dr. Barry Crowley, a Canadian dentist, regarding general dental health condition of the Filipinos.

Crowley said that the dental condition of the people has improved since his last visit in the country in 2005, noting that more people are now more concerned about brushing their teeth, while extraction are now performed less often.

Dental IQ has improved a lot, he said, adding however that excessive intake of sugar and carbonated water that lead to early deterioration of the teeth is still a problem in this country.

This problem, he explained, can be addressed through lectures showing young people how to brush, what not to eat and how to take care of their teeth.

Crowley is the head of the Kindness in Action (KIA) Team, which conducted a three-day dental mission, including free medical service and dental hygiene lecture, at the University of Luzon in this city and in Sta. Barbara town from January 13 to 15.

KIA, which was founded in 1993, is on its second mission in the country. The group has been conducting dental missions to such continents as South Africa, South and North America, and some parts of South East Asia. (ANL/ARRF-PIA 1 Pangasinan)
