Do you know that now all the children and staff of Jhamtse are walking around showing their white teeth?
One dentist named Aby and an assistant named Alex came from Tezpur to our community. All the students of Jhamtse and the staff had a dental check-up. At the same time, our Science volunteer teacher (Amma) asked us if we would like to go to clinic and help the dentist and learn something. We were really happy to hear that. She gave us a paper to write the names of those who wanted to go to the clinic and learn.
Some of us went by turn-wise to the clinic to help and we really learned something from the dentist. He was a very friendly dentist. He was very nice to everybody. He taught about teeth, kinds of teeth, why teeth decay and why gums swell up. He also taught us how to use a brush, how to choose a brush for the betterment of our teeth, how to do suction while doing scaling (cleaning) and filling. Many different things apart from teeth.
He was such a good inspiration for us. He advised us to study hard and be good listener to our teachers, Amalas and Genla. He said “Be what you want, develop your region and look after poor people and help them.”
