Teddy Bear Hospital
Teddy Bear Hospital is a Latvian programme for kindergarten and school children delivered by dental students. Students are sent to local schools and kindergartens during school hours, they use teddy bears to teach students the importance of good doctor patient relations, as well as the importance of public health in all aspects, including dentistry.
At the moment the initiative is a small one, but one which could be expanded nationally. The project is completely run by the student organisations, with funding secure for the foreseeable future.
