The Department of Dentistry, Trichy SRM Medical College Hospital & Research centre aims at prevention and eradication of dental caries and in promoting good oral hygiene through oral health awareness. Since children have the potential to bring incredible change to our world, Children’s day would be a great start for dental camp.
An oral health awareness and screening camp were conducted for about 320 children of SVM HR SEC SCHOOL, Palur. The programme included presenting primary oral health care tips for children. Parents and teachers were educated and motivated to visit a Pediatric Dentist or an Oral Healthcare Centre at the earliest when it comes to prevention of oral diseases. The Department of Dentistry at Trichy SRM MCH& RC is fully functional and equipped to provide oral health care treatment at all levels.
Children from kindergarten to the fifth standard were screened and advised treatment. Those who required secondary and tertiary level care were referred to our department for further treatment and management. The Screening programme with fun-filled learning activities ended up with active participation of the children with the great reach of oral health awareness in the young minds.
