” Sometimes even the greatest joys bring challenges, and children with special needs inspire very,very special love.” -Sarah Palin.
Such was the love that inspired me when i looked into Deepa’s mouth. I thought it would be quite a challenge, doing her check up and treatment. She could hardly manage a smile and her teeth……what shocked me was her positive attitude towards the dental treatment and that made all the difference. Drilling away and doing her filling was possible only because of her good behaviour.
At our clinic we carried out a camp in which we did fillings, scaling, fluoride applications, light cured restorations, root canal treatments, extractions and other necessary treatment for around 30+ children from Peace Heaven School for Special Children, Caranzalem.
I realised while treating them that they are even more cooperative than other children. It is surely due to the effort of their teachers who have a tough job but they still enjoy doing it. I really appreciate their dedication. It was a most satisfying camp for me. I enjoyed so much and I am thankful to God and Dr. Noronha, that I got a chance to do something for them. Their smiles are true blessings.
Wishing a Happy Christmas for these little Angels.
