As a element of its continuous endeavour to market oral healthcare, Oman Dental College (ODC) supported a group of its students and alumni who had been participating in a charitable dental well being camp in Nepal. This well being camp was organised by Missions and Mercy, a non-profit organisation committed to provide totally free oral well being care globally.
A total of 25 volunteers from Oman which includes 16 students and two alumni from ODC participated in this camp. ODC students and alumni proved their competency and capability to offer and provide superb complete care plans and oral well being treatment options.
Dr Sara al Balushi, an ODC graduate, who led the ODC team, mentioned, “Thanks to the training we have received at ODC, we were able to provide high standards of clinical work. We showed great teamwork and set up an organised system to deliver treatments which ranged from preventions and prophylaxis to restorative and surgery.”
Jumana al Kamashki, a final year student, mentioned, “We were thrilled when we exceeded the target number of patients as we were able to double the number from 300 to 650 patients for full treatments and another 150 patients for check-ups and screening.” Dr Nutayla al Harthy, vice dean, Academic and Clinical Affairs, mentioned, “ODC students produced high quality work which was appreciated by Nepali dentists and the Missions and Mercy charity.”
