In association with Smiling Dental Hospital, Orchids The International School Jubilee Hills had organized a free dental check up and awareness camp for all students in the campus during school hours on 24-08-2016. A team of dentists carried out a comprehensive dental check up on students. The camp was initiated with dental awareness talk, educating students about common dental ailments, especially stressing on tooth decay and gum diseases and measures to prevent them. The students were highlighted about the eating patterns and food choices which cause tooth decay. The Dentist 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”, the dentist added. On completion of the dental check up each student was given a Patient Card, a report summary of the diagnosed problem and the recommended dental treatment plan.
