Lions Health Care on Wheels provides free dental health check for B40 kids

THIRTY children from B40 families in USJ got their teeth inspected, cleaned and treated last month thanks to the Lions Health Care on Wheels program which drove up to their neighbourhood to carry out the initiative.

The mobile dental clinic bus was brought to Goodyear Court 6 with a volunteer dental team, led by dentist Lion Dr Foo You Han as part of the Lions Clubs of Subang Jaya, Serdang and Selangor Unique joint project to bring their Lions Health Care on Wheels into USJ.

Lion SN Tai, the organising chairperson of this project said “This bus has been travelling across the country working with local Lions clubs to carry out treatment.”

β€œIn Subang Jaya, we worked with the community leaders of Goodyear Court 6, Nor Azliana and Faridah, to identify the children needing treatment and a suitable area to station the bus clinic.”

At noon, ADUN Subang Jaya Michelle Ng, came by to see the mobile dental clinic in action and thanked the volunteers and Lions.

Throughout the event, Leos from SMK USJ 8 were on hand to usher and comfort the children with goodie bags after their treatment.
