The joint venture of Kantipur Dental College (by Dr Buddhi Man Shrestha) and Nasong, VDC organized a dental camp on 7th and 8th June 2018. There were plenty of health posts for general health for people of Nasong but they were deprived of dental treatment. They had to travel 4-5 hours ride to Lamjung, Besisahar for the treatment. So this program was hoped to be beneficial. With this motivation we set our journey to Nasong from 6th june to 9th june.
