New dental health clinic

Shayal Devi
Saturday, March 15, 2014

PLANS are in the pipeline to introduce a new dental clinic at the Viseisei Sai Health Centre.

The centre's Dr Rajat Gyaneshwar said they were holding talks with the Health Ministry on the possibility of having medical personnel at the clinic.

"We already have a room set aside for this and all the equipment and resources have been donated by a Sai devotee," he said.

"We want this project to come to fruition because preventative dentistry is something we need."

He said once the clinic opened, it would be accessible to members of the public.

Dr Gyaneshwar also said one of the major issues for them at the community level was addressing the increase of NCD risk factors.

"There have been two studies conducted in Fiji and it shows that things have worsened. We work in Viseisei community with over 6000 people.

"Our studies have shown us that our lifestyle risk factors are as bad here as it is in the rest of Fiji. People are still overweight, they don't do enough exercise and they are consuming the wrong food."
