Between March and April 2010, a awareness campaign and education of the secondary school students will be carried out regarding the importance of dental health. The campaign is supported by the School Inspectorate of Bucharest.
The campaign, carried out by Dent Estet4kids & 4teens and entitled "New moon smile revolution", targets more than 3,000 students in grades V-VIII, from 10 general schools in Bucharest.
Thus, for the first time, for a month, the 10 Dent Estet doctors specialized in children's dentistry will discuss, in an interactive way, with the students, topics of interest to them - how to maintain a healthy tooth, tips related to nutrition, breathing, orthodontic appliances, risks of smoking or dental jewelry, etc.
Currently, adolescents from the age group of 10-14 years, students in grades V-VIII, rarely reach the dental office. Unlike adults, who are aware of the negative effects of not treating dental problems in time, adolescents do not yet understand this and try as much as possible to avoid or at least delay the visit to the dentist. That is why, for the first time in Romania, Dent Estet has decided to carry out a wide campaign of information and education among adolescents, based on unique methods of communication, for example presentations containing characters loved by adolescents.
"The worrying results of the studies on the dental health status of the population in Romania made us initiate this campaign which aims to inform students first about how they can avoid the dental problems that occur frequently during adolescence and which can even lead to serious illnesses such as gum disease and oral cavity, up to oral cancer. This campaign to inform the dangers of neglecting dental health is not a traditional one, but aims to be interactive, innovative and adapted to the language and concerns of adolescents, "he said. Dr. Oana Taban, CEO Dent Estet.
One child in two needs a dental appliance
Regarding the dental problems faced by adolescents, a study by the specialists of the Dent Estet Clinic shows that, for example, a child in two needs a dental device, this in cases where the lack of proper treatment can lead to serious problems. health, which affects the stomach, heart or kidneys.
"The School Inspectorate of the Municipality of Bucharest is open to such partnerships, with private companies, which invest in educating the young generation. This type of prevention campaign also requires resources from the private environment and can lead, in the long term, to improving the dental health of the population. ", said Mrs. Mirela Sisman, within the School Inspectorate of Bucharest.
At the end of these meetings, the students will know how to take care of their teeth, they will gain more confidence in the dentists, which they will not be afraid of, and, last but not least, they will find the answer to the question "What can you do to have it? a healthy smile? ".
"With this campaign, we want both to provide dentists a more friendly image among adolescents, as well as to become allies of parents. We want them to convince students of the importance of early walking to the dentist, thus helping them in their education to the child, "added Dr. Oana Taban.
