Patients were patiently waiting their turn to get dental examinations and treatments from the doctors.

Good Oral Health is also Good General Health. Taking good care of our teeth and gum regularly is practicing preventive medicine. However, dental health is often underestimated.  Most people will only visit the dentist when they are in extreme pain.

For this reason, The Independent Team from the Dental Faculty, Trisakti University, Jakarta, together with HDI Foundation conducted a Dental Awareness Program  “My teeth and I” on February 27, 2011 to the people at Kampung Terate, Serang, Banten. This program included free dental examinations and treatments for everybody.

The team of eleven doctors examined everybody who came during the 8hours, and treated 65 children and 14 adults.

The people in the village were very grateful and requested for the program to be held on a regular basis.

Thank you to all the Doctors from the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Trisakti for sacrificing your time to provide free dental examinations and treatments to the poor.
