Introducing the group

 | Post date: 2018/11/28 | 
The mission of this office is to improve dental and health of the target community within the coverage of the Vice-Chancellor’s Office for Health of the Iran University of Medical Sciences. This requires increasing community awareness about dental and oral health, early referral for treatment, and easy access to dental and oral healthcare services.
While teaching and learning about dental and oral hygiene is very easy, dental and oral diseases are painful and dental care services are very costly. Dental and oral care education can play an important role in public health and households’ economy.
Therefore, this department plans, organizes, and coordinates implementation of programs for effective service and monitors and consistently evaluates the quality of services.
Oral and dental care programs are providers in different places (school and kindergarten, Welfare Organization of Iran, Imam Khomeini Relief Foundation, etc.), taking into account the priority of serving target groups (people under 14 years of age and pregnant and nursing mothers).
In dental units covered by the university, services of level 1 (prevention) and level 2 include examination (screening), health education, repair, pulpotomy, tooth extraction, dental cleansing and brushing, fluoride therapy, and fissure sealant therapy. In the cases where people need specialized services they are referred to other specialists.
 
Level 1 services are provided by dentists, as well as health care providers (Behvarz) in rural healthcare houses and healthcare supervisors (Moraqebin) at comprehensive healthcare centers, health station, and schools. (Examination - Training - Fluoride Therapy)
