Put a Smile on our Old Folks Face
On the 20th May 2012 – 12 old folks from Rumah Orang Tua Seri Setia Petaling Jaya completed their trip to the dentist and put a real smile on their face with their new dentures and polished new tooth. A team from Centraid the welfare arm of Guru Dharma Society carted the old folks who they managed to physic up to go for a dental check up. A good Samaritan dentist Dr Khaw from Cheras offered to provide free dental check up and treatment for 20 old folks.
The medical wing head Ms Suzie who is also the Hon. Treasurer of the society highlighted that the medical wing decided to do this activity as part of its caring society theme. We have observed that many of the old folks in homes need dental attention but are not able to due to either high cost or their immobility. Although it took about 4 to 5 trips from the home in Petaling Jaya to the clinic in Cheras, for the completion of their treatments, it was heartwarming to see the smile on the faces of these old folks.
