On Wednesday 18th of December 2019, Faculty of Oral & Dental Medicine’s Community Service and Environmental Committee, in cooperation with the Internship Administration organized a field trip to visit Modern Education School in Fifth Settlement district. A group of staff members, dental interns as well as a team from MIU Dental Clinic Complex (nurses and administrative personnel) joined the trip.
The purpose of the visit was to raise dental health awareness by giving a detailed PowerPoint presentation using visual aids, role playing and using dummies. During the visit, dental interns examined all KG1 students. The students received cards explaining their oral health state as well as the suggested treatment to be handed in to their parents. They were all invited to visit MIU Dental Clinic Complex to receive the required dental care free of charge.
Two forms of questionnaires were distributed: one at the beginning of the session for the teachers, and administrative staff to determine their needs, and another one at the end of the session to evaluate the provided program and measure their satisfaction. A questionnaire was distributed to MIU participants as well. Educational materials and packs of tooth paste and tooth brushes were distributed among all students.
