SEREMBAN, 20 April 2019 – Bachelor of Communication students of Semester 4 from Alpha College of Technology organized a Public Relations Event named “Dental Care Awareness Programme” with the tagline “Your Smile Matters”. The event was organized in a hospital called “Sehat Healthcare Centre” here in Seremban 2, Negeri Sembilan on 20th April 2019.
The main goal of this event is to increase awareness of the importance of dental care among students especially in Alpha College of Technology. This idea was triggered because most of the students nowadays get their teeth checked and they are unaware of the importance of dental care. Apart from teenagers even adults nowadays are neglecting dental care. Furthermore, this event was aimed to teach students on how to organize a Public Relations event of their own. This will be very useful for them once they complete their studies and become a Public Relations Officer or practitioners.
The event started at 9am with the registration of students and followed by the arrival of guests and VIPs. Once the guests and VIPs arrived, they had their breakfast and the event started right after. The Director of the event, Navpreet Kaur Gill gave her welcoming speech followed by a prayer recital for the success of the event. In her speech she stated that “Students can benefit this programme because it can give them enough exposure to the benefits of dental and oral care”. She added, “The months of this programme was nothing less than a life experience. But on top of all, our lecturers never left our side.”
Right after the speech, Dato Dr Loo Cheen Yeng, President of Sehat Healthcare Centre took the opportunity to thank Alpha College of Technology for choosing Sehat Healthcare Centre to do their event. Later, Dr Darshinee Babu took the stage and taught students on the importance of dental care. Followed by her, Dr Lee Kuo Wei and Dr Kayla Teh Khe Sin who is one of the most successful dentist in Malaysia shared so many new and fun facts regarding dental. They conducted a short Q&A session.
The event ended with the prize ceremony and the presentation of token of appreciation to the guests and VIPs. The organizer team did a great job by choosing dental care awareness as their main theme because in current times people are unaware of the importance of dental care.
