Dental Project Update


The Cebu Dental Society, which we have worked with in the past, asked that we do a puppet show at their special activity during Dental Month. We put together a new 40-minute show focusing on health, hygiene, and the care of our teeth, which our teen and preteen puppeteers presented beautifully. As a finale, Esther (15), Suzy (15), Larissa (11), and the puppets performed a dance routine to the song “Happy Smile.”

As a result of that show, we were invited to the 1st National Dental Festival, which was held at the biggest mall in Cebu. Songs like “Brushy, Brushy,” “White Sugar,” “Happy and Healthy,” and “Happy Smile” were big hits. Afterwards the president of the dental society sent us a message of appreciation.
