The idea is to provide easy access to dental awareness and dental treatment through Drishti Foundation Charitable Dental clinic projects in most part of India and provide best Dental Care services to all through community. The dental charitable clinic works towards providing best dental care through oral health education and affordable dental treatments.
Most of the dental diseases are the sequel of neglect in the early years of life, for example, consumption of a carcinogenic diet, lack of awareness regarding preventive aspects, and habits like smoking and/or tobacco, pan, and betel nut chewing. Our Charitable dental clinic projects are designed and developed to provide dental care as well as dental awareness to the needy people in India, where there is no or minimum access to dental care provider most of the parts of India.
Henceforth the Prime Objective of the Drishti Foundation Charitable Dental Clinic is providing Dental Access to that part of Indian population for whom Dental treatment is completely un accessible.
Due to advances in medicine and an increase in prolonged life expectancy, the number of older people will continue to increase worldwide. It is essential that all older adults practice and maintain good oral hygiene due to the high correlation between oral health and general health. Maintaining good oral health is not only vital to your systemic health—it can keep us smiling well into retirement. Brushing at least twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste and a soft-bristle brush is as important as ever. Flossing is very important, too—it helps to remove plaque from between teeth and below the gum line that our toothbrush cannot reach.
Oral cancer is one of the most common cancers and most often occurs in people who are older than age 40. Oral cancer can form in any part of the mouth or throat. If not diagnosed and treated in its early stages, oral cancer can spread, leading to chronic pain, loss of function, irreparable facial and oral disfigurement following surgery, and even death. Oral cancer has one of the lowest five-year survival rates of all cancers; this is primarily due to late diagnosis. See a dentist immediately if any of the following: red or white patches on gums or tongue, a sore that fails to heal within two weeks, bleeding in mouth, loose teeth, problems or pain swallowing, or a lump in your neck.
Hence in our Drishti Foundation Charitable Dental Our dentists and staff are highly skilled, caring, and dedicated to serving seniors and those with special needs.

As we prepare for the next millennium, we must find solutions to the problems that exist today not just from a dental practice point of view, but also from an educational and political standpoint.
The Charitable Dental Clinic can certainly provide and impart a better care for the senior citizens of my country and i think there is an urgent requirement of such a charitable clinic at the present time in India.
