" I am really excited to be a a Millennium Fellow because it’s a great way to learn from others how to help people from my country who don’t have access to private health care and also teach them the importance of preventing oral diseases. It’s a great way to put into action a good project while learning how to do it the right way. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project of Preventive and Restorative Oral Health Care in Schoolchildren
We went to public school to help in prevention and detection of oral infections in schoolchilren. Also teached them and their parents about health lifestyle to mantain good oral health.
About the Millennium Fellow
I am a dentistry student in my last year of university. First I studied public relations and communication because I was scared to study dentistry, by then I had the courage to change careers and follow what I really wanted to do. Now I am really close to achieving my degree as a dentist and I don’t regret my decision. I love to see the smiles of all my patients when I do a good work on their mouth. It’s not only about how it looks but it’s how you can give confidence to someone by helping them recover their oral health.
