ALMOST 200 students of Camp Lapulapu Elementary School in Apas, Cebu City benefited from the dental mission organized by Cebu-based call center Executive Boutique (EB).
The outreach program held in the school’s covered court was one of the corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives of EB and its sister company Select VoiceCom, in partnership with United World Smiles.
The activity, which took place last March 14, kicked off with a demonstration on proper brushing techniques followed by a short lecture on good oral hygiene.
Student-beneficiaries, aged 6-7, received fluoride treatments and availed themselves of the free oral examination conducted by volunteer dentist, Dr. Michael Goldman of the United World Smiles.
Over 40 EB employees volunteered for the mission.
Apart from dental services, students were also given dental kits containing oral hygiene essentials, such as toothbrush, toothpaste and dental floss.
“It is our hope that through this community service effort, we were able to promote the values of practicing and maintaining good oral hygiene habits, which is important for the overall health of these young students.” said EB president Mark Shapiro.
The company is located at the 12th floor Skyrise 2, IT Park, Lahug, Cebu City.
