Recently we've worked with Mbayani Primary School. Mbayani primary school in Blantyre is one of the schools with the highest enrollment of learners. Most learners do not have access to basic information of dental care. Oral health education was conducted at Mbayani primary school in June 2018 with the aim of improving the dental care of the standard seven learners.
A dentist provids the learners with basic education on how to effectively clean their teeth. Each learner receives a toothbrush and toothpaste donated by Colgate Palmolive.
