On the 27th of February 2019, the Department of Public Health Dentistry, D. Y. Patil University School of Dentistry, organized an Oral Screening and Awareness Camp in conjunction with The Rotary Club Panvel Industrial Township.
The camp was held at Anudanit Ashram School,Zapwadi, Murbad and a total of 240 school children of all ages were effectively screened for oral health issues and dental caries. In addition to the screening, the participants were given a demonstration of brushing and flossing and other oral hygiene practices.
This initiative was undertaken by Dr. Sneha Khanapure (Lecturer, Department of Public Health Dentistry) and her team of 3 interns (Ishani Ratnaparkhi, Anushka Raut, Taabish Shaikh) and 2 attendants Mr. Arjun Patil and Mr. Ashok Patil.
Another job well done for the department of Public Health Dentistry as they spread oral health awareness amongst the School children.
