Project Title: M'Lop Tapang, Cambodia
The M’Lop Tapang program operates from a dental surgery located within a medical centre. The program provides dental treatment for street children and their families, dental prevention and education to the families and communities of M’Lop Tapang and training of local Cambodian medical staff regarding oral health. The program also mentors final year dental students and new graduates to promote volunteering amongst younger dentists. Dr Petrina Bowden sources dental volunteers and dental students and dental materials for the program as well as provides dental care during her regular visits to M’Lop Tapang. The program depends on volunteer dentists to provide services. The 2018 Section VIII ICD grant will be used to purchase consumables and to help sponsor dental students or new graduates.
