iTOP roadshow in India
Since 2017, Curaden AG has been running a dental clinic and a shop (including an online store) in Bengaluru (the former Bangalore), India. In February 2018, various iTOP seminars were held throughout Bengaluru. All events were lectured and lead by Dr. Lyubomir Galabov from Bulgaria along with five local dentists. In addition, over 300 dentists working in medical schools were introduced to our iTOP training program at five locations in the state of Karnataka.
The first feedback we received reveals that our «Touch to Teach» program has garnered tremendous interest from educational institutions such as universities. This inspires us to focus on our goal to increase our working relationships with schools especially with iTOP in student education. According to Professor Krishna Nayak, Director and Dean of the A.B. Shetty Memorial Institute of Dental Sciences of Mangalore, only about 5% of the Indian population (i.e., 60-70 million with a population of just over 1.3 billion) visit the dentist on a regular basis. This proves the need for increased dental and oral care prevention through awareness and education.
