Hygiene and Dental Health Workshops
Children: We have carried out another year of awareness activities for children. With this we intend that our children know how to perform a proper brushing and learn the importance of their oral health. In addition, approaching the children from the dentist, offering them a friendly and fun treatment, we try to avoid future fears that the dreaded odontophobia can generate.
Elderly: This year in particular we have developed this Hygiene Workshop for caregivers and relatives of people with Alzheimer’s disease. Our professional and social commitment leads us to combine our profession, our dedication to the elderly, providing the necessary knowledge and techniques to help care for the oral health of Alzheimer’s patients that is neglected in favor of other types of care and the memory failures caused by this disease.
