Free Dental Program at PAZKI (Padepokan Zammi Karina Indonesia) in Depok South Jakarta

Free Dental Program at PAZKI (Padepokan Zammi Karina Indonesia) in Depok South Jakarta We had the fortunate privilege of the help of 4 volunteer dentists—all graduates from the University of Indonesia to join our visit to PAZKI to check the children’s teeth for any problems—the first time for most of them to ever have their teeth checked.

The children and teenagers were divided into three groups. While one group was being checked, the other group was receiving a class on proper dental hygiene by Drg. Eva. The third group played games organized by Siska and Amanda. They really had fun and this day was special for each one!
