The two were appointed last month and will provide dentalÃ¢â‚¬Â¨services for Masvingo’s seven administrative districts.Ã¢â‚¬Â¨ Officially opening this year’s continuing Professional DevelopmentÃ¢â‚¬Â¨meeting for dental therapists and technicians at Great ZimbabweÃ¢â‚¬Â¨last week, the Acting Masvingo Provincial Medical Director, KudzaiÃ¢â‚¬Â¨ Masinire, said it was sad that Masvingo province did not haveÃ¢â‚¬Â¨adequate dental therapists in government hospitals.
“Masvingo province does not have adequateÃ¢â‚¬Â¨dental therapists at most of its districts hospitals except for Chivi,Ã¢â‚¬Â¨Chiredzi and the provincial hospital which just appointed two thisÃ¢â‚¬Â¨month,” heÃ¢â‚¬Â¨said. Without giving statistics, Masinire said most people did not knowÃ¢â‚¬Â¨much about the importance of oral health. He said that could be avoided if more dentists were available, adding that the ministry of healthÃ¢â‚¬Â¨was making efforts to ensure every district in Masvingo had aÃ¢â‚¬Â¨fully operational dental department.
The professional meeting was attended by various stakeholders in theÃ¢â‚¬Â¨dental department, with some participants coming as far as SouthÃ¢â‚¬Â¨Africa.Post published in: News
