Lots of interaction, correct answers, positive children and a warm welcome this is the general conclusion after the free dental hygiene lesson held at the "Da Vinci" high school, in early December.
What are the favoring factors involved in the appearance of dental caries?
How do carbonated drinks and fast food influence you?
How many times a day do we have to brush our teeth?
Why is the dentist our friend and how many visits should we make per year?
How long must we brush our teeth and how is it fair to brush them?
One by one each dentist and medical student answered these questions, presenting the information in an interesting way with lots of interaction and various useful examples.
The students watched carefully, marveled, intervened when they knew the right answer or on the contrary expressed their opinion, but in the end they all exclaimed that they will respect the advice offered so that at maturity they will have a healthy tooth.
Attending the workshop, the high school administration was pleased with the lesson, the gifts offered to children and teachers and came with a message. “Our students have learned many useful things presented in an interesting way. They have gained knowledge about proper care of the oral cavity and will certainly respect what they have learned, "said Nina Mantaluța, deputy director.
The free lesson on dental hygiene is part of the information campaign "The dentist - the friend of the children", conceived and supported by the chief physician of the dental clinic "Omni Dent", the gold-maxillofacial surgeon, Dumitru Sîrbu.
