Free Orthodontic, dental Check Up
The free program is intended for students aged above 12 years as part of center's 'Aesthetic & Healthy Teeth Campaign'. The center offers free check-ups from 12 am to 5pm except Fridays and Saturdays. Students and parents can contact on 06-5646252 for appointments.
"By our free check up one will know about their orthodontic problems, and how they have to correct it, says Dr Aisha M Hussain, an experienced orthodontist who works with Al Lulu Medical Center.
"The development of new technology has made things simpler, faster and more efficient. These days, an increasing demand for greater aesthetic and comfort during treatment led to the invention of white, tooth coloured braces to replace silver metal; braces that can be positioned behind the teeth instead of at the front and more recently, clear aligners to replace braces altogether, this will be more comfortable and attractive, Dr Aisha, explained.
In the past years also, many students and parents visited the centre and a larger number is expected this year.
