Oral care for pregnant women important

ALABEL, Sarangani (October 27, 2021) – Dr. Laudencio Mendoza (left), Dentist III, conducts dental check up to a pregnant woman on October 21 at the Capitol gym as part of the Tutok Buntis activity. According to Maria Razel Bustria, provincial NIP (National Immunization Program) coordinator, oral care for pregnant women is important “kasi kung may sira yung ngipin ng buntis, it might cause discomfort at hindi sya makatulog ng maayos. Ma-stress yung kanyang baby at minsan di rin makakain ng maayos.” Dental kits were also given to the pregnant women after the dental check-up. Also, the pregnant women, along with their husband or other family member, received their first shot of Covid-19 Pfizer vaccines. The activity was initiated by the provincial government of Sarangani in partnership with Mahintana Foundation. (Tres Besana – Jori Mae Samillano/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
