Show me your ‘gigi’!

On 24 October 2015, we held our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) event and invited a group of children from the Darul Ihsan Orphanage to i.Dental to learn all about oral hygiene and have their dental checkup. Our oral hygienists, Ms Leong Pei Qi and Ms Cecilia Goh took turns to educate the children on how to take care of their teeth and oral hygiene. They then demonstrated the proper way of brushing and flossing of teeth and how neglecting one’s teeth can lead to gum diseases.

The children then proceeded to a dental health checkup and routine treatment with our dentists. Some were pretty nervous as it was their first time visiting a dentist. Our dentists are trained to soothe and calm nervous children and distracted them by telling them stories and cracking a few jokes and in no time they were happily seated on the dental chair.  The checkups by our dentists were very helpful for the guardians as they now have a clearer idea of the kids’ current dental condition.

The kids had lots of fun posing for photos with the different props we prepared. Our staff also enjoyed themselves and were happily snapping photos with the children.

At the end of the event, they took home a goodie bag filled with many tasty snacks and useful stationaries! Overall, the event was well received by the home and children alike. It is our way of giving back to the society to help the less fortunate. Thank you Darul Ihsan Orphanage for spending the afternoon with us. It warms our hearts knowing that we have given the kids a fun-filled Saturday.
