Local Dentist Improves Health In Fiji

From the left is Dr Johnston Luen, Pukehohe; Dr Gary Lawrence, Kapiti; Dr Ray Joe; Auckland; and Dr Helen Cornwall, Wanaka.

Over the past six years, well-known Raumati dental surgeon Dr Gary Lawrence, has travelled to the island of Taveuni in Fiji along with three Rotary dentists from other parts of New Zealand, to provide much needed care at no cost to the island population.

They work long hours every day, except for those on which they are travelling to and from Fiji.

The three others are Drs Johnston Luen, Ray Joe, and Helen Cornwall.

Dr Lawrence bought his Raumati dental practice 35 years ago, and first gained knowledge of the critical need for dental assistance in the Fiji Islands through his Rotary Club of Kapiti connections.

This dentistry quartet returned in September from their Taveuni Island biennial visit, having administered 420 examinations; 905 tooth fillings; and 190 extractions, over a period of two weeks.

Their efforts in the commencement of school education in oral hygiene, together with an infection control protocol, has significantly reduced the overall tooth decay problem on the island very significantly.

A worrying overall dental problem in one area was discovered during this trip, where there were 6 children with 10 cavities.

This discovery was most disheartening, and remedial measures were put into place in an endeavour to educate the children to adhere to hygiene routines.
