The Department of Health has donated two dental buses to the Antique provincial government, which will deploy these in the southern and northern parts of the province.
Dr. Ric Noel Naciongayo, Antique provincial health officer, said on Thursday that one of these buses will be deployed in San Jose de Buenavista where the capitol is located and the other one in the northern Culasi town where there is an extension capitol.
Naciongayo said the buses were received on Tuesday by the Office of Gov. Rhodora Cadiao, who in turn turned it over to his office.
Meanwhile, Cadiao said the provincial government is hiring more dentists now that there are dental buses to serve the people.
She said they will also hire other health workers, including nurses, since health was a priority of her administration.
The governor holds People’s Day twice a week in San Jose de Buenavista and in Culasi to provide assistance to indigents. PNA
