Every year on occasion of WOHD Polish Association of Dental Students is launching a programme of school and kindergarten prophylactic meetings and lessons, which aim to discuss different oral health problems and possibilities of prevention. This year, due to COVID-19 pandemic, face-to-face meetings with children will be limited and a part of the meetings will be organised online. Polish students of Dentistry will be visiting schools/organising online meetings for a period of one month and will focus on the most common problems that touch children between the age of approximately 8-15. Meetings for parents will also be organised to talk about their children's oral health.
Teachers and school principles are also encouraged to take part in our oral health educational programme. A lot of WOHD original materials, translated into Polish, are distributed to schools and kindergartens. Teachers will make use of posters, as well as will publish our translated WOHD materials online, e.g. on schools' official webpages, to make it more accessible for children's parents. Media and social media promotion will take place to amplify the message regarding these valuable resources.
