Oman Dental College (ODC) in collaboration with Zanzibar Outreach Program held a Dental Camp in Zanzibar in August 2019 delivered by its Faculty, Staff, Alumni and Students.
The camp was primarily held at Bwejuu Charity School but other schools were also visited providing the school community with preventive and curative dental services.

Two portable dental chairs, units, digital radiology equipment, instruments and other accessories including dental materials and consumables as well as tooth brushes and tooth pastes were air freighted from Oman.
