For AMANC SLP it is very important to have the appropriate tools for childrens proper health care, in order to avoid complications in their treatment due to lack of financial resources. Hence the idea of adding a free dental office to our different support that we offer to the beneficiaries, which we were able to obtain more than 10 years ago, where fortunately, hundreds of children and teenagers with cancer from low-income families have been treated.
Having some type of cancer implies vulnerability in many aspects such as being alert at any time about what the body is trying to say. A large proportion of childhood cancer deaths are due to the lack of attention from primary caregivers. An important source of infections and diseases is the oral area. Everything could start with dental caries, a mouth sore or due to lack of oral hygiene, which if its not treated correctly and on time it can cause severe complication in the health.
Concerned about the situation, the idea of incorporating a dental office attended by specialists in the subject arises, with the purpose of monitoring and preventing situations related to oral health. The dental office provides a completely free service to all AMANC patients who require it. Different activities are made to encourage them to voluntarily attend their check-ups.
Through this project, our aim is to provide the necessary tools to our patients so that they can make their treatment more eassy going. We also seek to give them the education and information about the importance of oral health care to prevent complications in order to reduce the number of annual deaths.
