Free Dental and Oral Hygiene Camp organised by Colgate
Hi all mommies there!
How you all doing?:). Greetings in advance for the upcoming festive season.
Today, I would like to share my own experience over dental and oral hygiene with you all.
As parents, we all love and adore our kids. We care about their over all growth. Good health is always an important part of kids growth. It is must that we follow a regular health check up routine for our kids.
In reality, most of the times, we take our kids for check up only when they are not well. Other days, we tend to neglect about regular health check ups. One of the most important check ups (which we neglect most) is ‘oral and dental hygiene check up’. It plays very important part in kids health.
Why I am stressing so much on this because, in one of the recent studies done by health department of our government, it was found that 92% of students were affected with dental cavities, decay and gum problems.
This survey further tells us that between 40-50 percent of Indian population has never visited a dentist.
Colgate being a pioneer in oral and dental care products took many positive steps to bring awareness about oral hygiene and decided to organise free dental check up camps in many small and big cities across India.
I got an opportunity to visit one of such ‘Oral Hygiene and Dental Camps’ conducted by Colgate in my city. I visited there along with my little one. During my visit and while having a curious conversation with dental experts at the camp, I came across the most shocking fact that ‘1 in 2 kids’ in Northern India have cavities. This visit opened my eyes to many health facts and made me realise that a kids’s oral and dental health has a direct impact on their overall wellbeing.
After a thorough check up at dental camp, they gave us 5 dental cards to share with family and friends for a dental checkup.
It is surprising to find that, 2 out of 5 of my friends who visited dentist through the Colgate Dental cards, found that their kids are suffering from dental related problems.
The timely visit to Colgate dental camp made me receive a wake-up call about the lack of oral care and the many dental problems that our kids go through. Thank you Colgate! :).
Yes, oral hygiene is the gateway to a healthy body. We should recognise the importance of strong teeth for good oral health. Good oral and dental hygiene can help prevent bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease and help to keep our kids teeth as we they get older. I am glad Colgate sent me this lovely hamper full of healthy foods rich in calcium and the all new Colgate Strong Teeth, that has 4x strengthening power. It helps add natural calcium and strengthens teeth from within – Colgate for healthy teeth all the way!
Please share with me the steps you follow for your child’s dental health and I will be picking my two favourite answers to win a hamper from @Colgatein!
Love you all..Have a great day ! 🙂
