Gulbarga LEADer Organizes Dental Camp To Provide Free Dental Care for 87 Children

Posted on Saturday, October 19, 2013 by LEAD

LEADer Sangmesh from NV Degree College, Gulbarga, accompanied some of his fellow LEADers on a visit to a deaf and dumb school.  While interacting with the children at the school, Sangmesh noticed that many of the children, some as young as 5 years old, were not receiving proper dental care-their gums were infected and their teeth were decaying.  Recognizing the severity of this issue, Sangmesh decided to implement a solution for this problem.  He approached a well-known dentist in Gulbarga and asked for help.  The dentist denied Sangmesh's request at first, but after several approaches and follow-ups, Sangmesh was able to convince the dentist to help the children.  Sangmesh organized a dental camp, during which 87 children received dental check-ups, examinations, and dental cleaning products (toothbrushes and toothpaste) free of charge. After the dental camp, Sangmesh and his team approached the parents of the children and convinced them to send their children to the dentist in order to complete the treatment.  The dentist has agreed to perform dental procedures for the children in critical dental condition.
