OVERVIEW OF OUR TREATMENT CAMP

The department of Public Health Dentistry, SRM Dental College, Ramapuram  granted us permission to conduct a dental treatment camp among school students to enlighten them about the various aspects of dental hygiene. The school students who required dental treatment were segregated based on the screening camp details. The students were bought to the college camps by a team of interns and two school staffs accompanied the students.

A total of 105 participants between the age group of 9- 13 years were given various dental treatments like scaling, pit and fissure sealant and topical fluoride application. The camp also included dental awareness talk, educating students about common dental ailments especially stressing on tooth decay and gum diseases and the measures used to prevent them. The students were made aware about the eating patterns and food choices which can lead to tooth decay.

The young students cherished the chance to interact with the dentists to enquire and gain knowledge about their oral health and maintaining good oral hygiene.

The school staff and children thanked us for our service to the school.
