The Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte recently acquired Dental Bus Units from the Department of Health.
Today, August 19, 2021, Governor Imelda “Angging” Quibranza Dimaporo formally turn over these units to the Kapatagan Provincial Hospital and SND Provincial Hospital.
As the end-users of the trusted vehicles, the KPH Chief of Hospital, Dr. Remedios Fernandez, and Dr. Jasmine Pungginaguina, the Chief of Hospital of SND, were present in the said activity at the Provincial Capitol Grounds, Pigcarangan, Tubod.
Governor Angging extends her heartfelt gratitude to the DOH for the constant support to the Province, most especially during these challenging times.
These Dental busses will surely help strengthen the healthcare services that the province can offer to its constituents and other clients.
“We are very grateful for the DOH for giving us another essential health unit that we can use to deliver accessible and effective healthcare service, especially in those remote areas that have dire needs with their oral health,” Governor Angging said.
Each dental bus is fully loaded with two dental chairs, an autoclave, a compressor, and a complete set of dental equipment to cater to the needs of the healthcare practitioner and the patients.
Oral health is essential to our overall health and wellbeing. Although we can no longer see the beautiful smiles of others while talking because of social distancing and face masks, there is still a need to improve and maintain proper oral hygiene to avoid gum disease and other oral illnesses.
With all of this in mind, Governor Angging and the entire PGLDN continuously appeal for the open-mindedness and cooperation of everyone to still strictly follow standard health protocols to mitigate the spread of the virus in the province of Lanao del Norte. PIO-LDN
