1st May 2016, Dubai, UAE: Our dental hygienist Rahleh Mahtabpour joined 5 other instructors from Sweden, Romania, Serbia, Dubai and Prague for another round of European Dental Students Association (EDSA) - iTOP course last week.
“There were around 28 dental students from all around the world, and they were all so excited to have the chance to get a chance to take the course.”
“Learning iTOP or Individually Trained Oral Prophylaxis offers a lot of benefits for dental professionals. Students are trained, one-on-one, with the correct technique of brushing, flossing and using interdental flosses – the practical ways for everyone to maintain optimum oral health. We also talked about gum disease prevention through proper oral care practices.”
“The course ran for two days, and it was a great feeling for me to be able to share my knowledge to others. A small change in your oral hygiene habit can change a lot. Knowing this gives me so much energy and motivation to try my best to teach the participants.”
“I also love to take time with my patients and teach them how to clean their teeth more efficiently. I tell my patients that no hygiene treatment will work without them doing their part and that is proper and regular oral care.”
