    HKU Faculty of Dentistry provides dental service to non-ethnic Chinese

    "Gateway to Dental Health" was launched by the HKU Faculty of Dentistry in 2017 and has been working hand in hand with NGOs to provide free dental outreach service to Non-Ethnic Chinese (NEC).  The Project was initiated by Dr Prasanna Neelakantan, Clinical Assistant Professor in Endodontics of the Faculty, with the objective to improve oral health condition of local NEC. The project team engages the NEC community by providing dental services and oral health education and in 2018 and 2019, seven dental health fairs were organised. This year, despite the postponement of our outreach dental services due to the pandemic, the project team will continue to provide oral care support to the NEC community. Together with the India Association Hong Kong, Pakistan Association of Hong Kong and Health in Action, a webinar will be held to share oral health tips, information on dental services and to respond to self-care questions.
