Dental Colleges in Nepal

Why do we need Dental studies in Nepal?

Dental studies in Nepal are most essential studies in the context to Nepal. Oral health and hygiene care is very important for every human being. We eat almost all kinds of foods available, be it raw or cooked or baked food to satiate our hunger. Our teeth do the grinding and chewing of those foods so that it can be easily digested by our body. If we don’t have proper oral hygiene germs and bacteria can infest our teeth. Some people have dental problems such as cavities, stained teeth, toothaches, chipped tooth, cracked tooth, impacted teeth, sensitivity, hyperdontia, gaps, gum problems, wisdom teeth problems, etc. All these are common dental problems and to treat them we need dentist or oral care experts. This is why Dental studies in Nepal are so crucial and so are Dental campuses.
