San Pedro Smile Center
Welcome to the San Pedro Smile Center
The San Pedro Smile Center at Holy Cross Anglican Primary School is run by dental professionals who volunteer
their time to provide dental care to the students. Patients are given lessons in proper brushing and flossing
of their teeth and fluoride treatments. Today, volunteers continue reinforcing visits as positive experiences
and also perform restorative procedures, sealants, periodontal treatment and emergency care.
“We want both children and adults to visit their dentist for regular check-ups and not to wait until the tooth
hurts or starts decaying and then have them receiving emergency treatment only. We want them to see their visits
as positive experiences and encourage them to come back to the dental office for regular check-ups. Prevention is
the key word here.”
- Dr. Mark Johnson, the Smile Center’s project organizer and coordinator
