Awareness of Dental Health for Children

It brought our attention that the awareness of dental health in Indonesia is still low compared to other countries.

As a part of this year’s CSR program with the concept of “We grow together with local community”, we held  the dental event for children at Widya Puspita Kindergarten, on Friday, 27 September 2019 in order to increase the awareness of dental health from early age.

Supported by other establishments, Mandiri Health Care and Bhakti Vedanta Medical, and Dr. Gede Agung Wirakrama or Dr. Doni, we educated kindergarten students to understand the importance of daily dental care. 63 students who attended this event received a pack of tooth brush, paste, and a small toy (to make them happy and funJ) before Dr. Doni started introducing how and why brushing tooth is important, and gave a practice to the students on brushing the teeth correctly.

Before ending the dental class, students had quiz from Saviestri-Human Resources Manager of Ametis Villa Bali, to test their understanding. Winners received tumblr as gift. As one of our luxury lifestyle private villa in Canggu, Ametis Villa Bali will bring more positive ambiance and influence people to improve better future. Start from small thing to the big things in the future.
