Free dental treatment

ABOUT 30 students of Lautoka Special School received free dental treatment from a local dentist and two Australian professionals earlier this week.

The free clinic was organised by Lautoka dentist, Dr Vimal Murthi.

He said work carried out by Australian volunteers Nadine Eram and Sarah Young had brought them in constant contact with vulnerable children at the special school and the Vilma Reddy Early Learning Centre.

"Some children were able to get checked for the very first time and those needing further follow up were given referrals to the Lautoka Hospital dental department," he said.

"Children learnt the importance of dental hygiene and were given interactive demonstrations on how to clean their teeth properly to avoid tooth decay and dental problems."

Dental day co-ordinator Ms Eram said she was pleased to see one of her project dreams come true.

"Although it was a bit of work, I really enjoyed being able to co-ordinate a project which was of practical benefit for the children and families I work with," she said.
