FIRST LADY ANNE GORDON: ‘’Smiling is Contagious’’
‘’Smiling is contagious,’’ Olongapo City First Lady and Zambales Vice Gov. Anne Marie Gordon said. ‘’When someone is smiling they lighten up the room, change the moods of others, and make things happier. A smiling person brings happiness with them. Smile lots and you will draw people to you,’’ First Lady Anne Marie added.
Mayor James ‘’Bong’’ Gordon, Jr. and FL Anne Gordon are working together in the program ‘’Operation Smile’’. Target of the program is to lessen if not eliminate cases of people with missing teeth and without dentures in Olongapo.
‘’Smiling is a great way to make yourself stand out while helping your body to function better. Smile to improve your health, your stress level, and your attractiveness. Smiling is just one fun way to live longer read about the others and try as many as you can,’’ Mayor Gordon said.
Olongapo City’s ‘’Operation Smile’’ is in response to requests of Olongapeños, particularly Senior Citizens who find it difficult to eat, talk and are even shy to smile because of missing teeth.
The main objective of this program is to give away removable dentures to edentulous patients or people without teeth. This will also affect their health because it will be easier for them to eat and more importantly they will feel much better about themselves. This program aims to create smiles and change lives.
Those who will pass the dental evaluation will be given free removable dentures. For those interested, they can go to the Olongapo City Dental Health Services Clinic located at the City Hall lobby and look for City Dentist Dr. Donald Vigo.
