About Child Dental Centres
CDCs are dental clinic certified as Child Dental Centers under the aegis of Child
Dental Foundation (CDF) which conduct oral health screening a must for Healthy Teeth
for a Lifetime. We assess caries risk by scanning and detecting white spot lesions(precursors
to cavities), dental neglect, physical abuse and malocclusion in order to reduce
suffering, and saving teeth through prevention, education, support and research.
Presently there are 464 successful CDCs in India, functioning in various states.
IDA plans to set up 5,000 such centers in the near future.
This will provide a better outreach and accessibility to patients.
