One of the important aspects of our activity is child dentistry. Here, besides the treatment of illnesses that have already occurred, we attach great importance to prevention and to the creation of proper hygienic habits in children. That is why DDK runs a free program for group prophylaxis of children in kindergarten and primary schools called “Smiles of St. George “. Our program is fully in line with the recommendations from the German Scientific Society for Pediatric Dentistry. Our main goals are to educate children to acquire proper hygienic habits, to establish the need for dental care and prevention and to create conditions for good oral hygiene in educational establishments. Our program covers the following events:
Training of the teaching staff.
Visit to educational institutions for the purpose of training children and conducting prophylactic examinations.
Visit of the DDK German Dental Clinic by young children to help prevent fear from a dentist.
Tracking the effects of group prophylaxis through a re-visit to educational institutions.
Scientific literature shows that group prophylaxis is the most effective method of improving oral health in childhood. We are proud of the fact that in recent years our program has reached thousands of children in Sofia.
