SIDDIQIS Executive Clinics launches the Health Youth Awareness Program called as “Dream Smile Campaign”, which is a multi-factorial series of presentations focusing on general and dental health .
Team of Curcle reached out to Samee H. Siddiqi the founder of SIDDIQIS Executive Clinics and he had the following to share about the DREAM SMILE CAMPAIGN.
Throughout the world, many children do not have access to basic dental care and lack the education needed to achieve a healthy general hygiene . We are reaching out to young adults with free dental screenings and oral health education.
Dental disease is the most common chronic illness for children in Pakistan. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) more than one-quarter of children have tooth decay in baby teeth before entering kindergarten. By age 19, 68 percent of youth have experienced tooth decay in permanent teeth.
Dental disease is preventable, yet dental care is the most common unmet health treatment need in children. In Pakistan, teenagers lack health insurance as there no concept of it in Pakistan and more than twice that number lack access to oral health services. Untreated dental caries can lead to pain, weight loss, missed school days, poor appearance, decreased self-esteem and even death.
The youth awareness program is divided in two sessions.
Session 1 – Presentation
- Primary Professional Grooming
- Balanced diet (Key to success)
- Primary dental education
- General habits affecting oral hygiene
- Maintaining healthy oral hygiene
Session 2 – Student Dental Screening
- To aware every student individually about their
- Oral hygiene & how to maintain it.
- Prevention of any disease is better than cure
- Guiding & educating them for a healthy oral
- Hygiene which includes proper brushing technique , use of mouthwash & dental floss
The goal of SIDDIQIS Executive Clinics Youth Awareness Program is to provide general & dental health that would increase prevention of early dental decay and improve identification of higher risk, more vulnerable populations of children.
