dental care project
Hands 4 Zero Poverty had the privilege to select 50 students from a school in the slums of Faridabad and provide them free dental care. The children selected were those showing significant sign of tooth decay. None of the children selected had ever been to the dentist before. Most families in the slums do not visit the dentist until it is too late, this is due to the cost of dental care. According to Delta Dental, poor oral health can lead to problems such as oral and facial pain, problems with the heart and other major organs and Digestion problems.
Five of the children selected where close to permanently loosing one or more teeth. Two were close from acquiring a significant infection. These children returned for further treatment all covered by the donors of H4ZP. If you are interesting in supporting additional dental care project like this, please contact us.
