Dental Health Educational Session

The CII participants were fortunate to attend an educational session on dental health with Dr Rajni Rijal, The Women’s Council Chairman. Rajni is a dentist by profession and was able to talk to the participants around the importance of maintaining good oral health. Rajni used various props to enable her to demonstrate to the participants how to brush properly as well as how to floss. The participants were educated on the impacts of poor oral hygiene and the implications of this. This is important for all and especially for children and adults living with disability who may have rigid or loose chewing muscles or find they drool, gag or have swallowing problems. All of these things impact and complicate oral care. Very practical skills and knowledge to take back home and share in the participant’s home countries and communities!
