Vijayawada: The NSS unit of VR Siddhartha Engineering College has organised a free dental check-up and awareness camp at ZPH School, Tadigadapa in association with Government Dental Hospital, Vijayawada on Tuesday.
A team of senior specialists, dental surgeons and paramedical staff carried out a comprehensive dental check-up on students of Class I to X.The camp was initiated with dental awareness talk, educating the students about common dental ailments, especially stressing on tooth decay and gum diseases and measures to prevent from them.
The students were highlighted about the eating patterns and food choices which cause tooth decay. The surgeons 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.
The students got ample opportunities to interact with the dental surgeons to enquire and gain knowledge concerning oral diseases. On completion of the dental check-up, each student was given toothpaste, toothbrush, patient card, a report summary of the diagnosed problem and the recommended dental treatment plan.
The school HM Annapurna Rani thanked the dental surgeon. Dr Narendra Dev, paramedical staff and NSS Dr Kolla Narendra, NSS programme officer and others were part of the camp.
