Volunteer movement in the dental community of Ukraine

FREE TEETH PROGRAM

The project is called “Free Teeth”, in which the children’s dentists of the Dental clinic-studio “Apollonia” (Poltava? Ukraine) teach oral hygiene and treat tooth decay in schoolchildren whose father died in the war, or whose family was forced to move to our city from the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine.

Free teeth means that the teeth are free of plaque, caries and gingivitis, with sealed fissures, and which are freely cleaned twice a day using a toothbrush, toothpaste and dental floss. And free teeth can only be in a free country!

The project is funded by the Callahan Memorial Award and private donation of the author in half and with the support of ICD. We have our own funds equally, the budget is 10,000 USD. The project started on February 13, now it has 28 participants, 18 of whom have finished treatment…

On March 20, on the World Day of Dental Health, announced by the FDI, there will be a meeting of children with their mothers, participants of the Program, with doctors participating in the Program and staff of the clinic, at which we will talk with cartoons about the importance of preventing dental caries instead of treating them. The main stage of this meeting is an individual hygiene lesson with double control of the quality level of brushing teeth for 10 children with information for their mothers.

The “Free Teeth” program will operate until the budget is exhausted, and will be extended subject to additional funding.

BRUSHING UP HUMANITY

Dental caries is a widespread, non communicable disease that affects over 5001 million children globally, particularly in the underserved communities. In England each year there are 48000 children who go into hospital every year to have their rotten teeth removed under general anaesthetic. The Dental Wellness Trust set up a campaign 9 years ago called “Saving Kids Teeth” to be able to rectify this situation to help save more children’s teeth through educating school children about oral health and introducing innovative supervised toothbrushing programmes.  Whilst Oral Heath is a Basic Human Right, these novel supervised toothbrushing programmes called the Livesmart Toothbrushing programmes were developed in South Africa 12 years ago for 21000 children and the knowledge and experience gained from these programmes have been implemented into the Luton Young Oral Health Programme. This programme and the Keep Luton Smiling Programme recognises the impact that can be made when working within a community where there is particularly high social deprivation and mixed ethnicity, and importantly an existing proven incidence of poor oral health amongst the young. The Lecture will highlight the Young Luton Oral Health Programmes that have been established in Luton assisting nearly 25000 children in 36 schools and nurseries and this number is expanding.
