Welcome to Muskaan Card
Muskaan Card aims at extending oral care for rural Indians because dentist/population
ratio in the rural areas is dismally low. There are only 2% dentists available for
72% of rural population residing in rural India who lack oral health awareness,
income, transportation and access to treatment. Therefore they are more prone to
tooth decay or gum diseases. A large segment of the rural adult population is toothless
due to the crippling nature of dental diseases and about 40 % of the children suffer
from malaligned teeth and jaws affecting proper functioning. Muskaan Card is important
as it introduces preventive, interceptive, curative and educational oral health
care into the existing dental care system in rural India.
