Every where we travel in remote villages, we see school children suffering daily with dental pain. Parents complaint about their children cried during the night due to dental pain, they could not chew food, school teachers report that their pupals missed school often due to infected teeth and swollen jaws. Every where we set-up our make shift dental clinic, the line is long, people would walk for miles to come, willing to wait all day to be treated. To help the community to grow and look forward to a better future, good dental health must begin with the mind. Therefore dental health education must be carried out through everything we do, every where we go, with everyone we see.
