– Encouraging Indians to ‘Take The First Step’ towards better oral health via free dental camps across 80 cities in the country

Staff Reporter : Kolkata, 21st March 2024 : Sensodyne, a leading oral care brand from the house of Haleon (erstwhile GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare), is organizing a series of free dental camps across India from 12th March to 31st March 2024, as part of its #BeSensitiveToOralHealth initiative around World Oral Health Day, observed annually on March 20th. With these camps, Sensodyne aims to educate Indians about the importance of proactive oral care and provide free, quality access to dental care.
According to a recent study, nearly 60% of Indians grapple with oral health issues . However, only 5% of Indians seek proactive dental care, with no prevalent dental insurance . Sensodyne is addressing this by organizing 500+ free dental camps in various cities, including rural areas.
The dental camp that will be hosted in Kolkata, will address oral health issues such as sensitivity, gum health issues, cavities, and enamel erosion. Patients will also be educated on simple steps they can incorporate in their oral care routine to take better care of their oral hygiene at these camps. To generate awareness, Sensodyne has also partnered with approximately 5000 pharmacies near dental clinics across India, placing QR codes for consumers to locate nearby free dental checkup camps.
