Oral Health Project Sierra Leone (OHPSL) by Dental Health International Nederland


Oral health awareness and dental care are almost absent in Sierra Leone outside Freetown.

OHPSL started with 2 intensive trainings for medical personnel to provide basic dental care. 

13 persons from 7 hospitals are able to diagnose decay, give anasethesia, remove teeth and give prevention lessons to individuals and groups.

The project continued with 4 dental camps to improve knowledge and experience.

Plans are made to start a School for Dental Therapy.

A project of DHIN.
