In line with Manila City's ongoing commitment to achieving the vision of an "Orally Fit Manilenyo," the dental professionals from the Manila Health Department (MHD) District I recently organized a series of dental activities aimed at promoting oral health among the residents.

One of the significant initiatives undertaken by the MHD District I was a dental outreach program held at Amado Hernandez Elementary School. During the event, dedicated dentists provided essential dental services to the students, including permanent fillings, sealants, fluoride treatments, and extractions. Additionally, free toothbrushes and toothpaste were distributed to the pupils, emphasizing the importance of maintaining proper oral hygiene practices.

The dental activities held at Amado Hernandez Elementary School were part of the broader "Orally Fit Manilenyo" campaign, which aims to raise awareness about dental health and encourage preventive measures among Manila City's residents. By offering these crucial services directly to the community, the initiative seeks to ensure that everyone has access to quality dental care.


The dental professionals from MHD District I demonstrated their expertise and dedication throughout the outreach program. With their skills and knowledge, they were able to provide valuable dental treatments and educate the students about the importance of maintaining a healthy smile.

The "Orally Fit Manilenyo" campaign aligns with the city's vision of creating a healthier community and reducing oral health-related issues among its residents. By actively engaging with the community and conducting such dental outreach programs, Manila City aims to instill good oral health habits and promote overall well-being.

The success of the dental activities at Amado Hernandez Elementary School is a testament to the commitment of the MHD District I and their continuous efforts to prioritize the oral health of Manila City's residents. Through their tireless work, they are making a positive impact on the lives of the students and their families.
