School Dental health Programs

School Dental health Programs

Schools are an ideal place to provide dental care to large groups of children who have undiagnosed dental conditions with accompanying pain affecting their oral health related quality of life.

Taking dental care to the school setting has numerous advantages, where children are engaged within a setting that is familiar to them making them more positive towards dentists and developing a positive attitude towards accessing dental care.

At KCDS, both the departments of Public Health Dentistry & Department of Pedodontics conduct various school dental health programs throughout the year that include health education, preventive fluoride & sealant programs, screening as well as treatment for dental diseases.

SCHOOL DENTAL HEALTH PROGRAMS

The Department of Pedodontics  has adopted government schools in and around Yelahanka, Bangalore North Zone. On an average 10- 12 school children who have been identified with treatment needs are brought from the schools with parent consent, and treated in the hospital premises. Since the inception of this program, 6000 school children have been screened and 2500 children have been treated.

The Department of Public Health Dentistry, apart from regular school based dental camps, in association with Sri Ramana Charitable trust have conducted 53 school camps out of which 18 camps were conducted in remote places of chikkaballapur and Chintamani taluk in the period of  November 2017 to January 2018.
