The Liga Studentilor la Medicina Dentara Bucuresti (LSMDB) is a member of the International Association of Dental Students (IADS). The aim of their “Get Your Smile On” oral health campaign was to positively engage children and teach them healthy behaviours that they can practice now and in the future.
The campaign focused on educational activities about oral health and toothbrushing techniques; student volunteers also distributed oral hygiene products for children living in less-favoured areas.
Lessons from children
The dental student volunteers were grateful to learn from the children as much as the children learned from them! The volunteers see World Oral Health Day as an opportunity to educate the younger generation about the importance of oral health as well as gain a better understanding of how amazing and unique children are!
