Sustainable dental care in school
Focusing on school can be hard when you have a toothache. It might sound simple, but it is the reality for many children in undeveloped countries. That is why we work to create a sustainable school dental care in our project countries – because if children have healthier teeth, they can focus on more important aspects of life like school.
Karin Kornø Rasmussen i Guatemala
Dentist Karin Kornø Rasmussen travelled to Guatemala to do research on the dental health of school children in the South American country. The results from Karin’s research speaks out loud and clear; the country has a massive need of help in order to improve the dental health.
Make a difference, develop your professional knowledge and meet other cultures.
As part of our longterm development work TUG sends out volunteer dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants and students from dental schools twice a year to our projects around the world. As a volunteer you treat acute dental issues and teach the children about dental health and toothbrushing.
