BayaNiJuan is a project under ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc.-Operation Sagip that comanages the community of Southville 7 in Calauan, Laguna with the National Housing Authority (NHA).
The donation will be used for the daily operations of the dental clinic in Southville 7.
Ivoclar inaugurated the dental clinic in Southville 7 in 2015. It has top-of-the-line dental facilities and equipment, such as a dental chair that comes with LED light powered with a sensor to avoid cross infection among patients, autoclave for sterilizing dental equipment and a dental X-ray machine. The clinic has medicines, syringes, masks and other dental needs supplies.
Ivoclar also donated dental materials such as system kits for the repair of ceramic restorations, calcium hydroxide dressing and light-curing transparent fissure sealant.
“We still have a third tranche. We are just identifying the areas where we will use it. For now, we are finishing the part where we are giving dental materials and maintaining the dental clinic,” said Ivoclar managing director Jasmin Valenzuela.
