The Joyful Smiles campaign took place in the GEMS Bradenton Preparatory Academy. The events ran over four days and involved doctors from Dr. Joy Dental Clinic visiting the school and conducting oral examinations. Each student’s assessment was recorded and necessary dental treatments were recommended.
From our results we found that 42% of children aged 6-9 years, and 62% of 10-12 year olds suffered from tooth decay compared to a much lower 16% of 13-18 year olds. These results indicate that dental decay is more prevalent in the younger students, highlighting the importance of regular dental check ups. We have top Pediatric Specialists in our Jumeirah, BurJuman and Mirdif branches who can advise on the best way for children to brush their teeth, avoiding dental decay and treat any problems to stop the condition worsening.
Many children may be nervous visiting the dentist. Our Pediatric Specialists have extensive experience in treating anxious children, helping them feel at ease. We offer IV sedation, which is the ideal solution to help your child feel relaxed and calm throughout their dental treatment. IV sedation is conducted in our Jumeirah branch in a safe and caring environment by our General Anesthetist from the UK who has over 30 years of experience.
The results also showed that 22% of 6-9 year olds needed orthodontic attention, 52% of 10-12 year olds and 12% of 13-18 year olds. Dr Joy Dental Clinic offers all types of braces to suit the needs of your child. Our team of Orthodontic Specialists can advise on the most suitable treatment specific to your child’s needs.
