Speaking on the initiative smiles for all, Dr. Rajat Sachdeva, Director, DAYA FOUNDATION said, "Dental health is critical to overall well being of an individual, however owing to limited or no awareness it is often neglected. Through these camps we aim to create awareness about oral health and hygiene amongst children and teenagers early in life."
Oral hygiene in patients with special needs is essential as they tend to exhibit compromised oral health due to medications and difficulty in maintaining oral care. DAYA Foundation routinely conducts free dental camps to create awareness about oral hygiene. We make sure that the patients are comfortable with us and then treat them.
Special needs individuals include physically as well as mentally challenged individuals. Our dental team is attentive to the patient’s body language and we make sure that the patients or the caretaker understands our instructions.
Dental care for patients with special needs requires a different treatment approach than the conventional methods which we are expert at. To detect dental problems complete screening is done as rightly said Prevention is better than cure. And in order to encourage children free dental samples are also distributed.
Children as well as caretakers are given proper instructions regarding the importance of oral health, optimal nutrition and methods to prevent the occurrence and ways to improve oral hygiene in special needs patients. They are also educated about oral habits.
At Dr. Sachdeva’s Dental Institute we have all the latest advancements to treat special needs patients without pain and fear. We have portable X-rays which aids in diagnosing dental problems without causing any discomfort to patients. Patients are comfortable with us.
