Government urged to prioritized dental care education towards reducing oral infections

Chief
Dental Officer, Dr. Esther Mark is advocating for government and private
organizations to embark on dental care education especially in rural
communities in Ghana towards reducing oral infections.

Access
to dental treatment according to Dr. Mark if made available to the public can
minimized dental infections.

“Government
should organize more outreach programs so that people can use the Health
Insurance card to pay for the services. Because, establishing a dental clinic
is not cheap, it is very expensive”, Dr. Mark stated.

She
said this during a free dental screening held in Teshie in the Bawku West
District of Upper East Region.

The
free dental screening which was organized by Haven of Love Children’s
Foundation was sponsored by Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Charity Foundation in collaboration
with Smiles for Everyone Foundation.

In
maintaining a healthy oral care, Dr. Mark who facilitated the dental screening
exercise said the age of an individual should be considered when selecting a
toothbrush.

Founder of Haven of Love Children’s Foundation, Samuel Djirackor Nana Bekai lauded the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Charity Foundation and its partners for extending the gesture to the people of Bawku West District.

“Everything
is free of charge so I am grateful. I must also commend the donors of Haven of
Love Children’s Foundation, the DCE of Bawku West and all those who are
supporting us”, he indicated.

The
team of dental practitioners visited some communities in the district to offer free
dental services such as, dental education, screening, dental sealant services,
dental treatment and provision of free dental toothbrushes.
