Our Drive for a Healthy Smile
Our Drive for a Health Smile involves the use of a mobile dental clinic for a healthy smile. This was set up by the Faculty of Dental Surgery, University of Malta in collaboration with the University of Malta Research Trust. The students attending all the dental courses at the University of Malta are required to participate actively in outreach events using the mobile unit as part of their academic duties, under the supervision of academic staff. This gives the students an opportunity to experience first-hand community needs.
Promotion of oral health, and provision of services to the broad spectrum of the population are also carried out in collaboration with the Dental Public Health Unit. The mobile dental clinic helps to provide outreach services and to reduce the inequalities that exist with regards to access to care. The Mobile dental clinic is also set up to be used for the National Dental Survey, a joint collaboration between the Dental Public Health Unit and the Faculty of Dental Surgery.
