Ivoclar Vivadent, Inc. donated the second tranche of their $100,000.00 donation to ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Inc.’s BayaNiJuan, amounting to 1.7 Million Pesos.

According to Jasmin Valenzuela, the Managing Director of Ivoclar Vivadent, Inc., the donation will be used for the daily operations of the dental clinic located in NHA Southville 7, Calauan, Laguna. “Meron pang remaining na third tranche. Inaayos na namin kung saang areas ‘yun papasok. Tatapusin lang namin ang pagbibigay ng dental materials at upkeep ng dental clinic,” she shared. (We still have a third tranche. We are just identifying the areas where we will use it. So for now, we are just finishing the part where we are giving dental materials and the upkeep of the dental clinic.)

The global leader in innovative materials and processes for quality, esthetic dentistry also donated dental materials such as system kits for repair of ceramic restorations, calcium hydroxide dressing, and light-curing transparent fissure sealant.

In 2015, Ivoclar Vivadent, Inc. inaugurated a dental clinic in Southville 7, Calauan, Laguna. The clinic has top-of-the-line dental facilities, equipment such as a dental chair that comes with LED light powered with a sensor to avoid cross infection among patients, autoclave for sterilization of dental equipment, and a dental x-ray machine. The cabinets in the clinic are also filled with medicines, syringes, masks, and other dental needs. Aside from this invaluable assistance, Ivoclar gives scholarship to those deserving youth through Don Bosco Canlubang. .

BayaNiJuan is a project under ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Inc.'s Operation Sagip that co-manages the community of Southville 7 with the National Housing Authority.
