Event description: 

As future dentist, we have message to deliver to our colleagues, friends and society, it's not only that dentist are visited when you notice a decay or unbearable tooth ache, but emphasizes on the educational, preventive role that we also master to guide our patients to healthy mouth and so a healthy body.

This year, LADS chose World Oral Health Day 2018 to be both educational and amusing, so that we can flexibly teach our colleagues (from different faculties and universities) the critical methods of oral hygiene and why is it important to maintain and introduce them to our specialties and when would they need every specialty itself.

At the same time, we created simple but fun games to attach those principles we explained above, to break patient-dentist barrier and spread oral health awareness, including templating prizes and award, to complete our program, we invited students (many ages) from different schools se we can spread more awareness and preparing our community to prevent oral and dental problems.

The event will be held in the main campus of Beirut Arab Univeristy.
