Oral hygiene is something we ignore from childhood till even after growing old! And this leads to a horde of oral and dental issues. Adding to our lethargy is the current scenario of food in the world, where most of the food items we get is either plunged with a number of chemicals, and even the organic ones are genetically modified ones. We, just, can never be sure of any kind of food to be a 100% natural and healthy. And this further presses on the need to maintain good oral hygiene and take good dental care of ourselves.
On the occasion of Childrens Day, we have taken up the responsibility to promote awareness regarding child's oral health, especially in mixed dentition.
These children really need us and I believe this is our duty to make them a better future.
A total of 400 children and school teachers were screened for dental problems and dental health education was imparted to all.
Small skit's where conducted by community dental team on
- Tooth decay – role play
- Oral habits & hygiene
- Psychological impact on students personality caused due to dental issues
The Principal and Teachers of the school helped our team, right from setting up of the camp to maintaining discipline during the camp and overall ensuring a smooth functioning of the camp. We hope to conduct many more such camps for the children, for their better future!
Healthy smiles matter!
