Students of the Society of Preventive Dentistry of Hong Kong (SPDHK) collaborated with Branches of Hope to hold an oral health education service on 8 October 2022. Around 30 people of ethnic minorities participated in this oral health promotion event. We designed interactive booths to debunk myths and misconceptions of oral health and oral hygiene practice. Each booth focused on a particular aspect of oral health, such as dentine hypersensitivity, dental caries and periodontal disease.
The event was a great success and was well received by the participants who expressed that they had gained much oral health knowledge and were more aware of maintaining good oral hygiene.
