The aim of the activity was to conduct a thorough medical checkup for all the children such that those identified with any illnesses be attended to.
On arrival at the school the team met with all the children and explained to them what they do after they encouraged them to work hard in order to become what they want to be. The dentists illustrated to them the proper ways of brushing and how it is necessary to brush their teeth every after a meal, they also taught them a song on keeping the teeth clean.
Dr Edrine taught the children about ways of keeping healthy that is bathing, washing their hands after using a toilet and before eating food. He explained to the children about the effects of being dirty and the different infections and diseases that would breakout due to not taking care of themselves.
The children had a one on one session with both the medical and dental doctors. The sessions catered for one class at a time. The dental team carried out teeth extraction, fillings, oral health education, screening of the children and referrals for the children who needed further management.
