23rd February 2016, Dubai, UAE: Dr. Sosan Fatima, our School Projects Coordinator, visited the kids of Jumeirah International Nursery SouthRidge in Burj Downtown yesterday during their “Being Healthy Week”.
“We did a video presentation and a toothbrushing workshop for kids 14 months to 2 years, followed by a demonstration of the dental chair to give them a feel of what it’s like to visit a dental clinic,” said Dr. Sosan. “We hope that by introducing them to the dental chair experience, they get more at ease when they go and see their dentists.
“For the second part, we did another video presentation, a puppet show and a workshop for the children aged two-and-a-half to 4 years followed by their dental checkup. All the children who showed up on the dental chair armed with bright smiles were awarded with special goodie bags.”
“We also had a Q&A session while interacting with children to know more about their brushing and flossing habits and also, to know if parents help them brushing. We ended our session around 12.30 pm and concluded our visit by thanking the children and the teachers.”
“The visit today with the little ones was just blithesome! It was great interacting with them and teaching them about their teeth. They were all so joyful and very attentive throughout the session. Special thanks to all the teachers and coordinators who helped us to make this visit successful.”
