SIBAR's Intersectoral coordination for Oral health promotion

After successful conduct of oral screening programme and sealant campaign SIMS my school, the management of SIMS group of institutions has requested the Department of Public Health Dentistry, SIBAR Institution of Dental Sciences to arrange for an oral health awareness lecture for nursing students of SIMS nursing college. Responding in affirmative to the request, an oral health awareness lecture was arranged highlighting the importance of oral health, its inextricable association with general health, and good oral hygeine routine. Students were given insights into their possible roles as oral health care providers for geriatrics patients and individuals with altered physical and mental health. #WOHD 2019 #ACT ON MOUTH HEALTH #INTERSECTORAL COORDINATION FOR ORAL HEALTH PROMOTION.
