Dental Mavericks Asni Trip

Dental Mavericks Asni Trip

An Update From Our Very Own Dental Maverick Trustee, Michelle

 
I had a great trip last week, a very successful clinic. We were in Asni, a small town at the foot of atlas mountains.  We did a trek in the mountains one day with a local guide, 3 hrs and tough terrain but this is the kind of walk the local people do all the time just to get to markets or to school !  
 
Stunning scenery, wonderful people but sadly a poor area and so dental health care is not readily available and the diet is high in sugar, so rates of decay are very high.  We worked in the local school and  provided fluoride applications, did extractions and a few fillings, but extractions mainly due to the decay rates.
 
Everyone gets a toothbrush, toothpaste, oral hygiene instruction.  Since we started the project 4 years ago ( now the 5th year) the rate of extractions we had to do has gone down.  We work in partnership with the Eve Branson Foundation on this project.
 
Over the 3 days in clinic we carried out 436 fluoride applications and 298 extractions ( a very small amount of the 298 would be filling maybe 15 or so, so mostly extraction).
