Students from Friends’ Embassy Bible School in Lansdowne were treated to an exciting, educational dental tour last week. Sharon Isaacs, owner of the school, says a local practice on the corner of Walnut and Rompe roads, took a visit to the dentist to the next level.

“Our school arranged the visit to the dentist last Thursday. We thought we were only going to sit on the dental chair and learn how to brush our teeth. When we got there we were pleasantly surprised with an offer to clean all the children’s teeth at a quarter of the price,” explains Isaacs.

“Dr Ebrahim said he wanted the children to experience the whole visit and after discussing it with Dr Abduroaf, the owner of the practice, he decided to clean all the children’s teeth at R100 per child instead of R400.”

“Our parents were grateful because several children were due for a dental visit. This was a first visit to the dentist for some. Dr Ebrahim first put anxious children at ease before cleaning their teeth.

“He asked the receptionist to clear the entire morning for us. Only our school was serviced during this time.

“He is offering the same to all the early childhood development centres in the area, and they have agreed to offer any recommended follow-up treatments at a discounted price.”

The 20 students were kept busy with art and craft activities while they waited.

They all went home with free toothbrushes and stickers.

“This was a great tour and offer because more local children will be able to receive good dental care.” He agreed to see the entire school in six months at the same rates.
