First clinic days in Kashmir

The beautiful children of Kashmir Orphan Relief  Trust arrived in their bus loads for the first day of the dental clinics. The aim for the first day is to complete dental exams so that we can organise treatment appointments for the coming days.

Kashmir day 2

In total our 3 clinics screened 165 children!! A tremendous effort from the entire DAN team. Yesterday’s oral health seminars appeared to have helped a lot – almost every child was an expert on oral health and their teeth were remarkably clean. The seminars were a new initiative introduced for Project Kashmir and we expect it will be a fixture in future missions. The evening meal was at the KORT centre. Sitting amongst all the smiling children was better than any fine restaurant; an evening to remember. As some of our team prepare for bed a few of us are putting the finishing touches on the DAN Dental Symposium we’ve organised for the local dental community. More updates tomorrow
