  • How big is the Jockey Club Dental Health Program for Young Children?
    The Jockey Club Children’s Dental Health Project will cover all kindergartens in Hong Kong starting from the 2020/21 school year, serving more than 180,000 children.
  • What are the service areas covered by the Jockey Club Dental Care Program for Young Children?
    We provide school-based services to check and control tooth decay in school children to prevent their tooth decay from getting worse.
  • Are oral exams safe for schoolchildren?
    The oral examination we provide is non-invasive, and the whole process will not cause any wounds. After the dentist completes the examination for each school child, he will replace it with brand-new appliances to minimize the chance of cross-infection.
  • Do schoolchildren need to pay extra for oral examination and silver fluoride treatment?
    The Jockey Club Children's Dental Health Project is generously supported by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. School dental checkups and silver ammonium fluoride treatments are provided free of charge for school children.
  • How long does each child need to be checked?
    It usually only takes tens of seconds for each child to check. In schoolchildren with severe cavities, silver ammonium fluoride treatment may take a minute or more.
  • What documents will the plan provide for schools to arrange and conduct inspections?
    We will provide the school with documents such as program details, parental consent forms, inspection record sheets, etc. All relevant documents will be emailed to the school four to eight weeks prior to the inspection. After the documents are sent, we will contact the school to explain the content of each document in detail.
  • When are parent seminars usually scheduled?
    Parents’ seminars are usually arranged on the day of the inspection. It is recommended to arrange them during the pick-up and drop-off time to facilitate parents’ participation. The specific arrangement depends on the school venue and there is no limit to the number of participants.
  • What is the Parent Seminar about?
    The content of the parent talk mainly includes the introduction of the outreach service, a brief introduction to common oral diseases of preschool children, and personal oral care of school children. There will also be a question-and-answer session at the end of the lecture.
