  1. For Children and Youth: School, College, Orphanages and Specialized Population: Dental Screening, Education and Treatments and referral to Specialized Dental Centers.
  2. For Adults: Dental Screening, Education and Treatments and referral to Specialized Dental Centers.

  • Professional cleaning and identification of dentures for seniors in the mobile dental clinic.
  • Demonstrations on brushing techniques for residents and/or their caregivers. 
   


 4. For Teachers and Parents: Health Education Program for Teachers is a must since children are with them most of the time, Parents can be also trained to reinforce the message at home. Health Education during Parents Teacher’s Association Meet is a wonderful Concept that could be implemented.
