Infant dental check-up a must

Kuala Lumpur : With immediate effect, the Health Ministry is making dental and oral check-ups compulsary for infants as young as one year, at all government hospitals and clinics.

The minister, Datuk Liow Tiong Lai said this would be incorporated through the monthly medical check-up for infants.

"When parents bring their chlid for the monthly medical check-up, the child's oral hygnene will also be checked," he told reporters after opening the Sixth Conference on Paediatric Dentistry Association of Asia here yesterday.

He said the move was also in line with the ministry's aim to promote better oral and dental care for the people, except that this time, it included chlidren below four years of age.

"We believe that dental care should start as young as possible. Do not wait until the teeth rotten before seeking treatment," added Liow.
