With a huge patient population with head and neck cancers in our country, dental and oral care is so very essential to relieve suffering. Our children, whether with cancer or with neurological deficits, commonly have dental problem too. It is so hard for them to access kind and inexpensive dental attention.
Pallium India’s Trivandrum Institute of Palliative Sciences (TIPS) is venturing into this area. On 11th March 2016, our dear Dr Ann Broderick from Iowa, USA, threw the new dental clinic open to our patients. Our dentist-palliative care doctors, Dr Sreedevi Warrier and Dr Amrutha Thampi will be looking after this service.
