We have an aim: to make people understand how important is their oral health and to show them all the methods of keeping a good oral hygiene. Our day will start in kindergardens and schools, were some lessons about oral hygiene will be held. We could not avoid also the schools and kindergardens for children with desabilities. There, groups of young doctors will help them to provide a correct teeth cleaning and to explain children how to manage to do it by themselves. Another important part of our event is to inform how many possible people about the ways of keeping a good oral hygiene.
