HKU Faculty of Dentistry provided Oral Health education and Dental Care service for South Asian women in UCN Centres
HKU Faculty of Dentistry has collaborated with the United Christian Nethersole Community Health Service (UCN) to provide primary dental care service and promote dental health knowledge and awareness among South Asian women in Hong Kong. An oral health talk/lecture was provided to UCN health care professional staff and volunteers to promote oral health in a long term. A total of 158 participants received free dental examination and individual counselling as well as topical fluoride treatment as needed. In addition, 520 of their family members also received oral health care products and education materials in their languages. Most (95%) of them were satisfied or very satisfied with the service.
The project was supported by the HKU Knowledge Exchange Fund 2018/19. More details can be obtained from the Faculty External Relations and Knowledge Exchange Unit or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Faculty of Dentistry at The University of Hong Kong is the premier dental school in Southeast Asia and the only institution in Hong Kong that provides undergraduate and postgraduate dental degrees.
