Title : MAKING SMILES
A dental doctor and final year dentistry students volunteered in this dental screening drive stationed in Aung Run Primary School in Cambodia. The make-shift dental screening room was a temporary set-up by the non-governmental organisations Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and One-2-One. The school children get their teeth checked and repaired by the dentists. Since 2019, these dental health screenings are conducted twice every year by One-2-One with financial support and coordination from CRS’s Healthy Kids Project. The dental programme is one of the joint initiatives led by CRS to support the oral health needs of children from rural and poor communities. The programme is greatly appreciated by the local schools and families.
