Dental caries is the most prevalent chronic illness among children. Dental disease is largely preventable and is less expensive to prevent than to treat.
Dental Team School Visits
The RQHR Dental Health Promotion team wish to thank more than 80 schools within our health region that helped us bring preventive dental services into their communities.
This added up to approximately 5000 children who received these preventative dental services which included:
- a dental screening
- oral hygiene instruction
- protective sealants on the teeth with deep grooves
- fluoride varnish application
