Dental 1Bright and early on July 29th 2016, three EBPP staff members (Komang Kurniawan, Kadek Indah and myself), our volunteer dentist from Denpasar, and a nurse from Kubu II Puskesmas (Puskesmas) busily prepare to head to Elementary School Four in Ban Village for a scheduled dental service program. The four of us pack into the EBPP Suzuki Karibian 4×4 and head off for a bumpy ride. There are no asphalt roads leading to this location. Instead, the road is very steep, filled with sand, and in an extreme condition – rainwater has caused severe erosion. jalan yang rusak membuktikan sangat sulit untuk mengelola tapi untungnya sopir kami, Kadek, dapat menangani jenis ini kondisi berbahaya.

Para siswa dan guru bersemangat menunggu kedatangan kami. Mereka menunjukkan kepada kita ke dalam kelas di mana pemeriksaan gigi akan diberikan. Kami dengan cepat mulai bekerja, mempersiapkan segalanya, membagi tugas sesuai dan mendaftarkan setiap siswa. Kami meninjau pentingnya dan dasar-dasar kesehatan gigi dengan anak-anak. Kami menjelaskan bahwa kesehatan gigi yang buruk dapat mengakibatkan masalah dengan sisa tubuh kita dan bahwa masalah ini dapat mempengaruhi kehidupan kita, mengganggu kegiatan sehari-hari. Tepat sebelum check-up dimulai, kami mengajarkan semua anak-anak cara menggosok gigi dengan benar, kita menyikat gigi bersama-sama menggunakan sikat gigi dan pasta gigi yang disediakan oleh EBPP.Dental 4

Anak-anak mulai mendapatkan gigi mereka diperiksa oleh dokter gigi, satu per satu. Beberapa malu atau takut, yakin tentang memiliki dokter gigi memeriksa gigi. This is often a challenge we face with children, but we know that as long as we take a soft approach and explain why it’s important, they will understand and agree. We can start to feel the enthusiasm and excitement in the room as the students flash their smiles, proudly showing off their clean teeth. It’s time for their photo shoot! We can see the value in this program right away – kids are gaining awareness about oral hygiene and beginning to understand the importance of taking care of their teeth as part of their health regimen.

The results are in: 72 checks in total. 4 had poor oral hygiene, 29 had a tooth extraction, 27 received a tooth filling, dan 16 have healthy mouths. This is just one day and a small sample of the impact EBPP has made on the dental health of Ban Village community members. Di 2001, EBPP started this dental program to educate and provide services for Ban Village and Tianyar as part of their community health outreach when no residents had any access to health or dental care, and the programme has been sponsored by Inspirasia Foundation since 2009. Di 2016, 51 schools with total 4,392 students are the beneficiaries of the program and so far, 21 school and 1,679 students have received services this year.

Dental 3At 11:30am, we pack up and say goodbye and head back to the office. We pack our stuffs and saying good bye to each other, untuk guru kemudian kami kembali ke kantor kami. Jalan-jalan bahkan lebih berbahaya dalam perjalanan pulang tetapi hanya memperkuat keyakinan kami bahwa untuk mewujudkan impian besar dan mencapai tujuan kami, kita harus mengatasi rintangan. Kami berharap bahwa di masa depan, semua orang (kita sudah memperlakukan semua anak-anak sekolah dan orang-orang di TK) Ban Village mendapatkan akses penuh dan sama dengan kesehatan gigi!
