It has been 30 years since September 20th was set as the “Chinese Teeth Care Day” by the Ministry of Health, State Education Commission and other 7 ministries and commissions. Along with the upturns of living standards and health awareness, oral health has gradually become the focus in our daily life, all of which are the credit to the unremitting effort from dental health participants and support from society.
Wenzhou, where people prefer delicate food and fresh aquatic foods, is a high-risk area of oral diseases. Dean of our hospital, Jian-feng Ma, suggests, according to the incidence rate, oral health problems plaguing people from Wenzhou includes: dental caries, periodontal disease and defect of dentition. Furthermore, oral diseases in children also should not be ignored. To greet the 30th “Chinese Teeth Care Day”, our hospital organized abundant activities based on the theme “Oral Health, General Health”, to raise public awareness of oral health care. On the afternoon of September 19th, one of the 9.20 Teeth Care Day series activities sponsored by our hospital, “Little Dentists Cultivating Record”, was held in Jianbin Branch. More than 10 “little dentists” attended the event.
Formal graduation of little dentist quick class. Little dentists would soon return home, start from themselves and do a good job to their own “little dentists”.
Dr. Lu and Dr. Wang said in the whole event, I can see some children’s oral hygiene is ok, but still some children has more rotten teeth, which their patients haven’t paid enough attention to in time. Patients also recognized the importance of deciduous teeth after professional examination, they all said they would get medical treatment early and repair rotten teeth. Our hospital has set a number of little dentist activities in recent years, with great results, all welcomed by patients. We also hope more and more children and patients can pay more attention to oral health through this kind of activities, care for teeth, so that good oral hygiene habits can be accompanied their whole life.
