It was stated with the aim to fight against oral cancer in youngsters. Association conducted a survey in an Indian city in 2014 and concluded that most of the youngsters are addicted to various tobacco products. The project was started to provide independence to youngsters from tobacco.

As we know that Oral cancer has become a severe problem all over the world and INDIA being its epicenter. In India Oral Cancer accounts for the maximum deaths compared to other type of malignancies. It is taking one life in every 6 seconds and tobacco being responsible for 2500 deaths/day in India. In every 100 cancer patients, 50 die due to tobacogenic diseases.

This project is executed by our members with the help of cancer specialists and oncologists. We conducted many seminars and conferences at college and school levels to demonstrate the harmful effects of cancer. Counseling the youngsters about tobacco and its products. We tied two fingers of a smoker that avoided him from smoking. Association has estimated that by 2020, we will be able to reach each and every youngster of India. Our aim is to educate the youth about the harms of tobacco with at least one person in every household has the basic information related to Oral Cancer.

Indian population is more than 100 billion, among every 10 healthy individuals 4 are affected with dental health problems. There are people who have never even visited a dentist due to their lack of awareness in dental health. These camps are therefore initiated to help people create awareness. For this project, we have made team of members from each dental college. These teams organize individual camps every week. These teams organize dental checkup camps every Friday in different areas and perform procedures like extraction, scaling, and other oral prophylaxis. We estimated that by 2015, number of Dental Surgeons may be enough to serve the communities. Our association is running project to make Madhya Pradesh tobacco Free State

We want to unite world Dental Surgeons so that we can solve each other’s problems. we have started Dental Surgeons exchange program that will provide us a good exposure of world dentistry. We want Indian dentists to visit other countries and gain more experiences.
