Talk by a Dentist

In order to understand the importance of dental care, as a part of the  EVS themes ‘Body Care’ and ‘Teeth’,  a dental surgeon ,Dr. Vishal Malik, was invited to school on 15th July 2016 to give a talk to children of classes III and IV.

The session began with Dr. Malik talking  about the different  types and parts of teeth and also about milk  and permanent teeth.

He played an interesting game with the students where he asked them to attempt to speak a sentence without their tongue touching their teeth. Since this was clearly not possible, the children realized that teeth played a major role in helping them to speak clearly.

This game was followed by a viewing of short videos on brushing techniques and dental care and the presentation was wrapped up with a ‘question session’ during which, the children’s queries were answered.
