Çoruh Türksel Dülgergil Keeps Kids Healthy Preventing Tooth Decay

In November 2009 Sabancı Foundation's "Turkey's Changemakers" program hosted Dr. Çoruh Türksel Dülgergil, who provided thousands of elementary school students with preventive dental care against tooth decay.

Working on this project since 1997, Dr. Türksel is using a method that is new to Turkey. Trained students from a medical-vocational high school brush children's teeth with a gel that contains fluoride iodide in order to prevent tooth decay. This treatment also encourages children to make a habit of brushing their teeth.

Dr. Türksel's project reached over 30.000 elementary school students in several regions of Turkey. Dr. Türksel's project not only improves children's dental health but also created a positive economic impact, as dental treatments prove to be very costly for the Turkish economy.
