The dental care session was conducted on August 5, as part of COPI's clinic project in needy areas across Vietnam.

Ten day prior to the event, Son Hung commune was hit by heavy rainfall and flood, disrupting the area's supply of water and electricity.

In order to keep the clinic running, COPI team had to borrow the only generator from the village and another one from the other, while the education board gave funding to pump water for them to use.

Thanks to the support of local authorities, people and the enthusiasm of its volunteers, COPI had overcome all difficulties to fulfill their tasks. 

At the end of the day, 250 patients who were students of 1st to 5th grade of the school with poor dental hygiene had received dental health check and been trained on the importance of regular teeth brushing, thanks to the training by COPI hygience team.

Dr. David Dehart, a team member believed that the training will save more patients in a long run, as preventive care is the best care./.
