During Welcome Program

Doctor John Niven with Nepalese dentist Dr Jangbu Sherpa held a very successful dental camp in Junbesi. They were enthusiastically assisted by the staff of KPHM, Tshering Dolma, Niru Rai, and Binda Magar plus our guide Lakpa Sherpa and Nima.

Also with us was our friend Marion Andrew and our grand daughter Molly. Their contribution made for the success of the camp.

During Camp

Our continuing priority has been to examine and treat the local school children, and with the full cooperation of all the schools, 260 children from Junbesi, Tumbuk, Phamuche and Serlo schools/monasteries attended the clinic.

It was very satisfying to find that our efforts of previous years have led to a significant improvement of the dental health of these children in particular the teenage children. 80 children did not require treatment and no permeant molars required removal.This means that children leaving school at the end of year 10 are dentally fit, and much improved oral hygiene and are more aware of the importance of dental health.

During Camp

Primary school children are still a concern, their deciduous dentition having extensive dental caries from too many sweets/lollies, poor oral hygiene and a lack of interest from parents. We concentrated on restoring permanent teeth present, preventive measures(fissure sealing) on permanent teeth, simple palliative treatments on carious deciduous teeth, and extraction of deciduous teeth where necessary( abscesses, pain).

During Camp

In addition to the school children 69 nuns attended from Thupten Choling Monastery and 104 adults from the village and the surrounding district including quite a few from more distant areas.

  • Patients: 431
  • Fillings: 284
  • Fissure Seals: 76
  • Scaling/Perio: 54
  • Misc. Treatment*: 22
  • Extractions: 80
  • No Treatment**: 137

* Includes Root canal and x-rays
** Includes a few nuns who refused treatment offered.

During Camp

Equipment: A dental operating light was brought from Australia and installed. One of the portable dental units (Silver Box) has been damaged, 2 of the hose switches need attention. There are 2 surgical suction units in store, one has a burnt out motor, the other a seized pump, it should be possible to make one working unit from these two units.

We would like to thank all those people with out whose cooperation, assistance and hospitality this dental camp would not have been possible.

Participants of Camp

Medical Team

Dr John Niven and Dr Trang Truong together with Australian and Nepalese assistants held a successful dental camp.

We managed to examine most of the children from Junbesi and Phungmuche schools. We were able to treat nearly all the children from Phungmuche, and a majority of the children from Junbesi who needed dental treatment. Lack of time prevented us from treating all the children.

The pleasing aspect was that the children from classes 7 - 10 showed much improved dental health, this is the result of us seeing these children for the past 5 years. We only had to extract 3 permanent molar teeth from this group, and the 2 children involved had not been seen by us before.

However the younger children are a problem, with large numbers of decayed deciduous teeth, and even decayed erupting permanent teeth. This is a result of poor oral hygiene, continual exposure to large quantities of lollies and sugary snacks, and parental indifference. This is also aggravated by the nuns of Chupten Choling who are over generous in giving out lollies and sugary snacks, even on one occasion to children awaiting dental treatment!

We also treated many villagers as well as patients who had travelled a long distance to receive dental treatment. The nuns from Chupten Choling also came in large numbers, and again we were not able treat them all.

During Camp
  • Patients examined 342
  • Patients treated 251
  • Teeth filled 402
  • Teeth fissure sealed 137
  • Scaling 23
  • Teeth extracted 150
  • Miscallaneous treatment 5
  • No treatment required or declined 58
  • Estimated children not treatment 30


  • Kushudebu should investigate the organising of an Oral Health Education plan through a Nepalese NGO into the local schools. This should be run prior to or in conjunction with our next dental camp.
  • There should be separate dental camp for the nuns of Chupten Choling.
  • As per previous dental camps we were unable to treat every patient through lack of time. Future camps should be of a longer duration.
  • I would hope that in the future the various Nepalese Government Departments would make it easier to obtain the necessary permits, visas and registrations. At the present time this proving to be a big problem in persuading overseas dentists to come to Nepal as volunteers.

Locals offering Khata at Welcome cermoney at Phongmoche

Due to huge earthquake shock, the people of Junbesi were mentally disturbed. The people were confused about how to rebuild their village. It was going to cost a fortune, the villagers were so depressed that they were unable to decide how to recover this disaster. At the same time in another part of the world at Wilderness school in Australia, people who love Junbesi and has attachment with Junbesi, were also worried about the village and surrounding villagers. They were planning to help the village and villager in the reconstruction work. As a result with the support from Wilderness School, today we are able to build temporary shelters with green zinc sheets and are distributed to the people. There were some difficulties and delays in relief work due to various reasons, but finally, with the support of Mr. Ang Tsering sherpa and Local Rebuild Committee the zinc sheets were distributed among the local villagers. It completed successfully our first phase of reconstruction plan.
