28th February 2016, Dubai, UAE: Dr. Michael’s Dental Clinic joined the Kids Health Carnival held last Thursday at the English Language School in Dubai. The health program ran along the school’s annual Science Fair and saw over 1500 visitors.
“Today was a pleasant day, we saw different age groups and got a wider exposure to know more about the dental problems prevailing among the children ranging from 9yrs to 16yrs. Many of them were affected with decay, malalignment and gum diseases,” said Dr. Sosan Fatima, School Project Coordinator. “Like we said before, a child is not truly healthy unless he or she has good oral health.”
“We carried out a dental checkup on students from FS2 to Grade 12. The camp kicked off with a dental awareness talk educating students about common dental problems, stressing on tooth decay, habits and gum diseases, and measures to prevent from them.”
“We also advised the students about healthy eating habits. The students got ample opportunities to interact with us. Upon completion of the dental checkup, each student was given a report card for parents to know more about their children’s oral health status.”
“We’d like to thank English Language School and all the organizers of the Kids Health Carnival who made this dental visit successful.”
