World Oral Health Day......1 !!!!





12 Sept. is celebrated as the World Oral Health Day and to mark this occasion, we the members of the Indian Dental Association, Meghalaya Branch decided to hold camps . This year we choose SOS Village and another school for the special children as our venue. I am putting this visit in two parts . The reason because I have a lot of pictures to show.
This was our drive down to the SOS Village......about 45 mins drive from the city. The day was a beautiful one.....blue sky , bright sunshine and five of us, all ready to start the day. I had to make a short talk. I was looking forward to it. I love talking to children......come down to their level.....see the world through their eyes and also get to understand what they understand by teeth . Its amazing some of the queries they come up with .

I've never heard of this before. I wonder if they ever hold anything like that here in the US?

Hope you had a grand time.
