As part of our oral health awareness campaign, our Pediatric Dental Specialist and School Project Coordinator visited Safa Early Learning Centre for a coffee morning.
November 13, Dubai, UAE: Our Pediatric Dental Specialist Dr. Mai Kamar and our School Project Coordinator had the opportunity to visit Safa Early Learning Centre – Al Badaa for a coffee morning.
Dr. Mai also showed videos on how to clean baby’s teeth, how to deal with teething and the ideal way of bottle-feeding a baby to avoid Early Childhood Caries.
The moms raised questions about toothbrushing and the amount of fluoride that’s safe for kids.
“Fluoride is a mineral that will fill gaps done by the bacteria in the mouth. The bacteria use the sugar in the mouth to produce acid which eventually form holes and dissolves the calcium salts out of the tooth. When you use toothpaste with fluoride, the fluoride patches those holes. This is how fluoride protects and remilitarizes the teeth.”
We’d like to thank Safa Early Learning Centre and the parents for inviting us and taking the time to attend today’s session.
