Colgate-Palmolive (Fiji) has been a strong supporter of the Fiji Dental Association (FDA) over the years.

Association president Dr Vikash Singh praised the support of the company towards FDA.

“The private practitioners are in partnership with a very prominent industry supporter who is working with the Association.

“This prominent industry Colgate-Palmolive has made it possible for locals to visit dentists who will do free check-ups,” Dr Singh said.

“The association is part of outreach programmes and we had received reports from members in the North and West.

“They had conducted outreach programmes and that is one way practitioners give back to the community.”

Dr Singh said more work was needed to improve dental health in Fiji.

“It is very prevalent. It is one of the most common diseases which have not been given enough emphasis.”

More than 30 dental practitioners and 15 trainee dentists took part in the three-day conference which included the AGM at the Radisson Blu Resort Fiji on Denarau Island, Nadi.

“The association’s other role is to mentor upcoming young graduates so if they interact with seasoned practitioners then it gives them valuable insight on how to function as a dentists.”

Meanwhile, most of the members are participating in the Annual National Oral Health Month – August.
