What is a typical Clinic day like?
As an AGP dental outreach volunteering participant, your days are action-packed both clinically and otherwise. Each working day morning following a delicious breakfast, you’ll join other friends to complete meaningful service work directly with the Nepalese dental hospital team including the Dental Supervisor in Charge of the clinic, his/her supporting Dental Assistants and local community members. First, the registration of the patients are made by the local volunteers. They are given OHI in a batch of 15 to 25, in return they are given tooth brush and fluoride tooth paste. After screening, the Treatment Plan is drawn and depending upon the principle complaint of the patient the procedures commence,
BP is taken and other medical history of disease is ascertained and checked. Patients with hypertension, any other serious medical conditions and pregnant mothers are considered as per the protocol. HIV and any other infectious diseases patients are handled as per the protocol standards. For children patients fluoride varnish, gel and sealant is used. Scaling, restorations, extractions and pharmacy is followed in that order for the general patients. There is a separate chamber for stores, sterilizing the equipment and tools. Changing room for the clinicians, and an project office is usually there at the temporary clinic premises.
