Mother India is country of celebrations and utsavs. We celebrate countless dates, we celebrate countless Pujas, we celebrate all religions. It is the time to celebrate patient care every day, every hour, every minute and every second. We live in a country of 130 million people and the significant majority of us Indians cannot afford quality dental health care and Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics is expensive treatment. A conservative dentist has significant role to play in day to day dental health care. Basic treatment including prevention is the need of the hour. We need to educate all our patients specially the lower strata in all government hospital, clinics, private dental colleges and satellite clinics. It is earnest request to all including Dental Council of India and Medical Council of India to make dental health education camp mandatory every week in all 310 dental colleges and all medical colleges of India. Are we bothered that prevention will reduce the number of patients in our clinics? – no, we honestly don't think so. In that case we will earn even more by practicing preventive dentistry. The treatment time and cost will be go down. And sterilization of instruments is the first step in prevention of cross infection. Proper sterilization will not only help the patients but also the dental surgeons and auxiliary staffs. Let the moto be prevention with even better sterilization.
