Dental camps continue in Bangladesh – October

The local dental team in Dhaka, led by dentists Dr Sunny and Dr KC, and NGO Forum coordinator Rizwan, continued to deliver dental camps in the slum areas of Dhaka.  This will be a regular occurrence, 2 days per month, delivering dental care and education to the slum school children and their families.

The October camps reached 189 people, with 175 fillings done and 90 teeth extracted in 2 days.  All kids and families received dental education.

The photos speak for themselves – a great young team working together, with support and visits from the President and others from the Rotary Club of Dhaka.
