SOAR January 2020 Report

Cavities are the most prevalent chronic disease among children in Armenia. The impact of the disease is reflected throughout life and affects health, employment, and quality of life. Cavities usually require intervention by health personnel to correct the resulting problems. These resources can be expensive, are subject to limited availability, and carry a significant cost to any health system. Studies have shown that:
• The average 5-year old child in Armenia has eight decayed, missing or filled primary teeth;
• Between the ages of 14 and 17 years old, the average child continues to experience dental decay at the rate of one permanent tooth per year;
• Almost 90% of all 12-year-old children have cavities; and,
• Only 20% of Armenian 18-year-olds still have all of their teeth.

To address dental hygiene issues among the orphaned children in Armenia, SOAR's Dental Clinic was established to provide free dental services to all institutionalized childre in Gyumri.  In January 2020, 38 children were serviced at the clinic, including basic cleanings and several extractions.
