Internet CBT helps children cope with dental fearAccording to a study that was published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, internet CBT helps children cope with dental fear. Dental fear has long been an issue for many people, however, investment in holistic therapies appears to be paying off. The main aim of the project is to deal with dental fear at an early age. Most dental phobias develop in childhood.

CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) can tackle a multitude of phobias. Most people find this method helpful and successful. Because of this, Swedish Medical University, Karolinska Institutet, has developed a new Cognitive Therapy Program for children and have gained some very interesting results.

The modules were delivered over a video chat platform by a trained psychologist. Surprisingly, over half the children in the study were completely free of dental fear or anxiety after only one year. Addressing the problem of dental phobia from a young age could allow many more people to access important treatment. Therefore, decreasing the numbers of people suffering from ill dental health.

Charities have joined together to help Filipino childrenCharities have joined together to help Filipino children with urgent dental issues. Volunteers from Dentaid, Serve On, and Team Rubicon teamed up to visit Mandaue, Cebu, in the Philipines, for a total of fourteen days. The team were based at Umapad Elementary School which was devastated due to damage by a recent typhoon.

The mercy mission consisted of hands on repairs to the school, as well as vital dental care and emergency treatment. In addition to this, training and equipment were provided for the teachers of the children.

Among the volunteers were dentist Mark Inman, and dental nurse Joy Baker from Inydene Dental Practice in Amesbury. Mark spoke to the Salisbury Journal about his experience. “It is good to be able to improve their oral health by taking out infected teeth. It was amazing to work with the other two charities because working together it had a greater effect.” The team also handed out over a thousand tooth brushes and they hope to visit the area again next year to provide more treatment and aid.
