Mayor Lacuna, together with the Manila Health Department, launched the program to promote proper oral hygiene and health care among the youth.

A part of the program is the provision of free dental checkup, prophylaxis and fillings to students of Jacinto Zamora.

Six students from the six districts of Manila also received free braces under the program.

"Sisiguraduhin po natin na ang atin pong mga bata ay mayroong malulusog na gums, malaya sa tooth decay at sa cavities, at wala pong magiging problema sa kanilang ngipin at bibig," said Dr. Lacuna.
