Dental Care for CEF children ~ Guest blog by CEF's Ms Thuy

In poor families, both the adults and children won't go to see the dentist until they have had a very serious problem for a long time because they aren't able to afford the fess. That is why a free dental service is very meaningful to them.

Every summer CEF organizes some of our children to see the dentist. On Tuesday we arranged for 11 students from a mountainous area in Quang Nam and 9 students from the countryside around Hoi An city to come to Hoi An to receive dental care.

There they were taught how important it is to keep their teeth clean and how to do that. Then they were checked and had dental treatment if needed, such as adding a sealant, doing a filling or removing a seriously decayed tooth.

Students went home with their gifts of toothbrush, toothpaste, and a small cup.

Thank you very much to East meets West Dental Centre for treating the children.
