'Doctor Quenotte' part in the campaign against caries
Author: internet Published date: 2009-06-14
In France, four in five teenagers have cavities! Compared to 50 years the situation has improved, but we are strongly behind our European neighbors. The prevention campaign 'tooth doctor' with children in primary schools aims to rehabilitate and educate children from an early age on their responsibility for their health capital.
According to the Union Française pour la Santé Bucco-Dentaire (UFSBD) in 1998, 61% of children aged 6 to 12 years have not teeth intact. Nearly 35% of them have problems on teeth and have never been treated. Over 35% of children under 6 years old have one or more decayed teeth. We are therefore far from the target set by WHO in 2010, no cavities in 90% of children 5 to 6 years!
A prevention campaign for children
In this context, UFSBD launched a prevention campaign in all primary schools of France. Its purpose is to explain to children why it is imperative to effectively and regularly brush your teeth at least twice daily (morning and evening). Moreover, this approach also aims to educate children on nutrition, pressing the balance and the evils of snacks or sweets.
The idea is obviously to make them aware of their responsibility towards their health. The final challenge is to play down the visit to the 'tooth doctor'.
