Kathmandu, Nepal – The Federation of Nepalese Dental Students (FNDS) conducted a one-day School Health Project at Adarsha Janapremi Higher Secondary English School, benefitting more than 200 students. The project aimed to promote good oral health practices among the students, providing them with basic dental care knowledge and services.
The event kicked off early in the morning with an introductory session by FNDS representatives, who explained the importance of oral health and dental hygiene. The students were then divided into groups, with each group receiving a comprehensive oral health screening by the FNDS volunteers.
The dental students conducted thorough check-ups, examining the students’ teeth, gums, and overall oral health. They also provided the students with individualized oral hygiene instructions, advising them on the best practices for taking care of their teeth and gums.
During the screening, the volunteers identified several cases of tooth decay and gum problems, which were promptly treated. The FNDS provided free dental services, including fillings, scaling, and cleaning. They also distributed toothbrushes and toothpaste to the students, emphasizing the importance of brushing and flossing daily.
Rohit Bhatta, secretary of FNDS told “We are thrilled to have been able to provide our services to the students at Adarsha Janapremi Higher Secondary English School, Bhaktapur . We believe that good oral health is essential to overall health and well-being. We hope that this project has equipped the students with the knowledge and tools they need to maintain healthy smiles for life.”
The students were also given an opportunity to participate in a quiz on oral health, testing their knowledge on various aspects of dental hygiene. The FNDS awarded prizes to the winners of the quiz, encouraging them to continue learning about oral health and taking care of their teeth.
The one-day School Health Project by FNDS at Adarsha Janapremi Higher Secondary English School was a success, raising awareness of the importance of oral health and providing much-needed dental care services to the students. The FNDS hopes to conduct similar projects in the future to promote good oral health practices across Nepal.
