Dentistry is not expensive, Neglect is.
The AMI School recently conducted an educational field trip to The AKUH Dental Clinic for the students of Class III.
“A healthy mind lives in a healthy body” is one of our fundamental beliefs behind promoting dental health awareness and making it a regular feature in our calendar. “
We wanted to spread awareness that bad dental health affects much more that just one’s teeth, and prevention is possible if a certain dental routine is followed including brushing, flossing along with regular visits to the dentist

Both doctors conducted a session that was educational, as well as interactive making it a fun learning experience for the students. A representative from Colgate was also a part of the session further emphasizing the importance of brushing the teeth properly.
We also managed to promote Dental Health Awareness in our classrooms using an Urdu poem titled ‘Daant toot gaya’. The teachers integrated the theme in different activities making the topic understandable and relatable.
The response of the students was amazing and came in all forms such as presentations, essays and artwork.
The posters and cards were made by our students after they returned from their field trip to the AKUH Dental Clinic. Thus, proving that our students not only learnt, but also understood the concept of dental health, and the steps needed to ensure it.
We, at The AMI School extend our heartfelt gratitude to Dr Mansur Ahmed, Dr Rashna Hoshang Sukhia and their team. We would also like to thank Ms Naila Badruddin for facilitating this delightful experience.
