School Dental Care Project
On March 1st, 2022 a group of staff and students from the Faculty of Dentistry at Tishk International University visited Ishik Gulan Kindergarten and Primary school at Erbil, KRG as part of the School Dental Care Project.
The project was supervised by the assistant of Dean of Students Dr.Safya Basman, and Director of Social Affairs and Guidance Dr.Zaynab Yalman.
The project aimed to conduct dental checkups for the school students and give them dental homecare instructions. School dental screening aims to identify oral health concerns at an early stage, hence prompting preventive and therapeutic oral health care for the children. The project also provides a way for children to have regular access to preventative dental health and a link to additional treatment services. 177 students were checked by the group in addition to filling case sheets with diagnosis and a treatment plan for each of the students to be treated in the Dentistry Polyclinic.
The students received gift bags consisting of toothpaste, a toothbrush, a notebook, and, a pen. Information sheets were also given to their parents to work together in maintaining the child’s oral health.
The school manager expressed his pleasure and gratitude for arranging such activities to help kids keep their teeth healthy. In the end, the Faculty of Dentistry staff and students received appreciation certificates from the directory of the school. The event was sponsored by Bright Dent Company.
