Sir Syed’s School Outreach Program


KARACHI – Current health issues can be caused by poor oral health practices; however, future health issues can also be caused by current poor oral health practices. Educating school students about oral health today may prevent dental health issues in their future.

Health literacy is vital at all stages of life, but promoting health literacy amongst school going students sets them up for a lifetime of an improved literacy for health.


Sir Syed Dental College (SSCMS) in collaboration with Colgate organized a day

long community outreach program at Nasra Trust School located in Korangi, Karachi.

These dental and oral health education efforts and outreach programs could establish positive dental and oral health habits among school going students and thus positively impacting their long-term health and wellness. The Dental team at Sir Syed Dental Hospital, are committed to improving the oral health through public education and campaigns and these continuous efforts are long-standing and ongoing. The initiative taken by Dr. Amir Akbar Shaikh (Associate Professor; Community Dentistry) and Dr. Zain Rauf (MPH, MHSMS) and other team members including Dr Yousuf Moosa (HOD Periodontology) with junior faculty at Sir Syed Dental Hospital was highly appreciated by the management of Nasra Trust School as arrangements are being done to cover other four branches of Nasra Trust School in nearby future.
