Free dental health screening for UAE GEMS Academy Silicone Oasis during National Smile Month

Dentist Direct Dubai promotes good oral health with preventive care

Dentist Direct Dubai, a UK-based expert in dentistry offering a holistic approach to oral health, observes National Smile Month with free dental health screening to promote healthy mouth and preventive care for students at GEMS Academy Silicone Oasis.

Keep your mouth healthy and you’ll have a healthy smile. At Dentist Direct Dubai, preventative dental care is taken seriously, so the figures from the Child Dental Screening carried out in 2015 were shocking to the team. Rachael England, Dental Hygienist said “65% of children having tooth decay and 80% having gum issues is dreadful, we don’t want a child’s first experience of the dentist to be one involving pain and negativity. We have been working closely with GEMS Academy to educate both students and parents about the importance of good oral hygiene and a healthy diet to bring this figure down to an acceptable level”.



To help keep your mouth healthy, Dentist Direct Dubai encourages that you visit the dentist regularly, at least twice a year for dental health checks and hygiene visits. A healthy teeth and gums could possibly reduce many diseases thus the clinic’s approach to preventive dentistry promotes continuity of care that is comprehensive, convenient, cost effective and efficient.


Dr Neil Mitchell, Principal Dentist said: “We are delighted to be involved in National Smile Month where we are keen to get across the key message that taking care of your teeth and gums not only benefits your oral health, it has positives for the way your whole body functions too. Prevention is key when it comes to reducing the incidence of dental disease and understanding the importance of good oral health — and its connection to your overall health.”
