had a Dental care Camp at HOPE school and the Chaimale
Village . Most of the visitors at the camp were children, women and senior
citizens. The camp aimed to provide dental treatment services to all the
villagers. More than 400 Individuals seeking dental care were provided with
services like dental check up, oral hygiene instructions, and provided them
toothpaste and toothbrush. The most common problems presented in dental
were dental caries, pain, stains, discoloration, mal alignment and bad breath.
Those requiring further management and evaluation were referred to other Dental
Hospital. Lastly we are more encouraged by the success of the health camp to do
more such programs in future. We were all the more happy by the presence and
support of the district officials of Chailmale
Following were the results from the Dental Checkup: 1.The Children from the poor family background and rural communities have better dental health condition. 2. The children, teachers and parents are aware of oral health and hygiene. 3. The children develop habit of brushing teeth twice a day.
