The department of Paedodontics and preventive dentistry conducted children’s oral health week as a part of social awareness programme about dental problems and the treatment. The theme for this year’s programme is about prevention of child abuse and neglect. We have conducted many awareness programmes regarding prevention of child abuse and neglect in various schools and organizations. In the department we have piloted puzzle games, musical chairs, ball games, ramp walk and distributed certificates to children for healthy smile and good behaviour. We also presented oral hygiene kits to underprivileged children to promote oral hygiene. To encourage undergraduate students we have held quiz and theme competitions and distributed prizes.
