The concept behind this initiative is to establish a provisional dental camp that provides basic dental care and education to the natives of the village. Dental procedures include dental and oral examination, removal of non-restorable carious teeth, fissure sealant application for sound permanent teeth in growing children. In the scope of preventative dentistry, topical fluoride application will be provided to children and young adults. Aiming to increase the public’s awareness to oral health, educational sessions will be organized to educate the children about correct oral hygiene practices such as tooth brushing and the effect of high sugar intake on dental health.
