H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn’s Mobile Dental Service Center
Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn has been concerned about the oral health of the people as she has aimed to develop the quality of life of the people living in rural areas, particularly of children and adolescents. To fulfill this purpose, H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn’s Mobile Dental Service Center was initiated. The royal office has established a committee for the H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn’s Mobile Dental Service Center since 1 May 1998.
According to the first meeting resolution in 1998, Mahidol University Faculty of Dentistry was assigned as the operation unit, in collaboration with the Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Office, Border Patrol Police Bureau, Provincial Public Health Office, local hospitals, and relevant institutions. They are responsible for planning the schedule to pay visits and provide dental services to the people in accordance with Her Royal Highness’’s graciousness.
More than 20 years under the project management, the center has provided dental treatment and oral health education to students and teachers in Border Patrol Police Schools, the schools under the H.R.H.’’s initiative, and underprivileged people across the country.
In addition, the role model institution for the “Fun Dee Mee Suk” project (Healthy Teeth, Healthy Life) has been established (on the auspicious occasion of the Anniversary of H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn). The royal officials are trained to be role models having the knowledge to inspire people to sustainably maintain their good oral health.
