26th May 2016, Dubai, UAE: We had the pleasure of welcoming the children of Dubai and Northern Emirates Homeschool Association (DUNEHA) on their field trip to Dr. Michael’s Children’s Dental Center earlier today.
"The children and their parents arrived at the clinic at 10am,” said our School Projects Coordinator Dr. Sosan Fatima. “We had them seated in our play area and by the time they were settled and comfortable, we started with a fun video presentation, workshop on brushing, movie, and songs."
"We had screening carried out for 15 children ranging from 3 – 7 years and the little ones who wore big, bright smile were all awarded goodie bags. We also had a quick session with parents explaining them about children’s oral health."
"We showed them around the clinic and inside the dental rooms and gave the kids a chance to explore the dental instruments that dentists use, and how the dental chairs look like. This is one of the best ways to introduce and acclimatize the kids to a dental practice. We want to let them know that dental clinics are a fun place where we make sure their smiles are healthy."
"We had an amazing time with the little ones. The DUNEHA kids are all very well-mannered and attentive all throughout the interactive discussions. I would like to thank the DUNEHA group, the parents and the kids for coming over. We hope to see you all again!"
