Camp for Children conducted by Department of Pedododontics and Preventive Dentistry

‘Catch them young and Watch them grow’. With this motto, Department Of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry has been conducting dental camps for children in various schools of Mumbai and Navi Mumbai in the month of September 2018. The aim of these camps is screen children for dental problems and at the same time spread awareness as well as promote oral hygiene practices in children.

Approximately 355 children ranging from 3 years to 6 years of age were screened for dental problems. History regarding feeding, snacking and brushing habits was obtained from parents. This was followed by a video presentation on basic oral hygiene measures where they were educated about ways to avoid dental caries and maintain oral hygiene.

These camps are an overwhelming experience as the doctors get an opportunity to instill a positive attitude towards dental care at a young age.

The following is a summary of the camps:
