Overall health literacy is low throughout Cambodia, but dental health literacy is even lower. Angkor Hospital for Children couples in-house treatment with outreach education and prevention programs that target schools and communities to promote tooth brushing, fluoride rinsing and better nutrition. Several times each month, the Angkor Hospital for Children dental team visits village health centres, orphanages and schools throughout the province to conduct educational sessions and dental health screenings. The Dental Clinic cooperates with our Capacity Building and Health Education Program to provide dental treatments while working in our communities to maximize our impact.IMG_4875
