Healthy Teeth for Happy Smiles - 2016-17

Healthy Teeth for Happy Smiles

In continuation of health check up camps held regularly, a dental checkup and awareness camp was recently organized at Witty International School, Pawan Baug.  A team of Senior Specialist Dental Surgeons, Dr. Vijay Karande , Dr. Pooja Karande and their para-medical staff carried out a comprehensive dental checkup for the secondary section students. The camp educated students on dental health awareness, educating students about common dental ailments, especially stressing on tooth decay and gum diseases and measures to prevent from them.  The students were highlighted about the eating patterns and food choices which cause tooth decay.  The surgeons also highlighted about the possible formation of harmful acid which develops when bacteria (plaque) get in contact with sugar in the mouth which ultimately results in tooth decay.   “Added sugars often are present in soft drinks, candies, cookies, pastries and therefore to help control the consumption of sugar one must read the food labels and choose the right foods and beverages that are low in added sugar”, quoted Dr. Pooja Karande.The students got ample opportunities to interact with the dental surgeons to enquire and gain knowledge concerning oral diseases. On completion of the dental checkup each student was given a Patient Card, a report summary of the diagnosed problem and the recommended dental treatment plan. The Head Mistress thanked the dental surgeons and the para-medical staff for rendering moral and selfless service to the school.
