Community Mobile Dental Consultations available on Tuesday.

GREAT BAY(DCOMM):--- Community dental care will be available from the mobile dental bus on Tuesday, February 20 from 2.00pm to 4.30pm at the Vineyard Office Park in Philipsburg where Collective Prevention Services (CPS), a department within the Ministry of Public Health, Social Development and Labour (Ministry VSA), is located.

Due to the satisfactory turnout last week where the dentist treated 26 persons, CPS Dental Program Coordinators have decided to hold another consultation.

Dentist Hilda Guevara will be volunteering her time to carry out the consultations.

Dental caries or cavities can be prevented by avoiding dietary free sugars. Moreover, dental caries is largely preventable through simple and cost-effective population-wide and individual interventions, whereas treatment is costly, and is often unavailable in low- and middle-income countries.

Severe dental caries can impair quality of life. For example, dental caries may cause difficulties in eating and sleeping, and in its advanced stages (abscesses), it may result in pain and chronic systemic infection.

Dental caries is also associated with adverse growth patterns. Further, tooth decay is a frequent cause of absence from school or work.

Use the opportunity on Tuesday to get your teeth checked at the free dental consultation.

For more information call CPS at 542-1122, 542-1222, 542-1322 or 542-1570.
