The Health4Moz association, in partnership with the Faculty of Dental Medicine of the University of Porto, is bringing a Dutch specialist and a team of Portuguese dentists on a two-week visit to Mozambique to unveil a non-invasive caries treatment technique, the organization announced today.
The treatment involves fewer instruments and supplies, does not require anaesthesia, and does not need to be carried out in a dentist’s office, the statement reveals.
Dutch specialist Jo E. Frenchen, who is responsible for the development of the technique, and a group of Portuguese dentists, will teach the method to final-year students of dentistry and dentists in the cities of Beira and Nampula.
Under the auspices of the “Mozambique: More than a Smile” project, the treatment will also be offered to about 500 school children.
Health4Moz’s oral health project receives an annual grant from the International Federation of Dental Medicine (FDI), as well as support from the Camões Institute of Cooperation and Language.Source: Lusa
