Your Smile is Precious :-) is about Innovation and Adaptation of a Community Care Model (CCM) for Oral Health in rural India.
This CCM came into being in 1984 under the WHO strategy and plan to improve the dismal condition of oral health
in developing countries especially in rural areas.
Working successfully for almost 20 years,
Auroville Dental Centre Research and Rural Action (ADCERRA) is a model that can be replicated globally.
Prevention is better than cure, but the ideal condition is absence of need for any care altogether!
Good oral hygiene begins from childhood and can be developed into a conscious habit ...
and your Smile says it all, healthy teeth, healthy body and healthy mind!
