Nepal has a dentist to patient ratio of 1:58,000 according to a study conducted by Ministry of Health, Nepal. Furthermore, many people cannot afford dental treatment as they can get very expensive. So, in our work for over past 10 years, we have seen that the best way to remedy the deteriorating oral health conditions in Nepal is to organize awareness and educational programs to children. Installing healthy oral habits such as brushing their teeth is the most cost effective and potent way to help the underprivileged Nepali children.

Project conclusion: 

Today we went to Mother's Pride Montessori to educate Pre-School Children, teachers and their parents about the importance of oral health as an important part of general health. The incidence of dental decay in Nepal is increasing day by day and an effective way to remedy the situation is to educate parents and teachers at an early stage so that the upcoming generation will be free from dental problems. 72 children were examined, free toothbrush and paste were provided and tooth sealant was placed in 12 children. Many thanks to Mother's Pride Montessori for the invitation.
