Organized by the Department of Pedodontics, SRMKDC
PEDOPULSE 2016- Children’s day celebration was organized for the 5th consecutive year by the Department of Pedodontics, SRMKDC. This year due to immense cooperation and interest from all the schools in and around the college, we were able to educate and provide free Oral health awareness for around 1500 students. Prevention of Dental caries is the main challenge faced by dentists of today. Paediatric dentists play a major role in providing oral health care to children. As part of our preventive program, chairside fluoride application was done to all the children. We had organised art competitions like drawing, colouring, and smile to kindle the imagination of children. As teamwork multiplies the success, after a week of journey with the children, the final hour of celebration arrived on 14th November.
A CDE program on the title “Intercept the Intercept” was organised at the TP Ganesan auditorium on Childrens day where Professor Dr. Sridhar Premkumar, a well renowned speaker & orthodontist, captured the crowd with his realistic and interactive lecture. The winners of the children’s day competition were felicitated. The gathering was honoured by the august presence of Pro Vice-chancellor, Registrar, Dean, Vice Principal, Secretary of Pedopulse, HODs of various departments, Staffs and students of SRMKDC. Pedopulse 2016 was a grand success with the help of student volunteers, teaching and non - teaching staffs and transport department.
