Dental check up for the kids in the mountains

We want to say thank you to Céline, Marielle and Liza, three dental students from the University of Bordeaux in France. They offered to teach the children in the mountains dental hygiene, how to properly brush their teeth and did a brief check on the actual situation. We were so glad to have the local schools involved as well and nearly 300 children had a dental check up last week. Thank you for your dedication, time and efforts to improve the lives of those children who have mostly no chance to see a dentist at all.
