I Do Care

Flagship project , I Do Care under Kulliyyah of Dentistry,  started as a small-scale dental community service for people living in care homes. Since the establishment in 2017 among elderly and adults living in care homes, we found there were huge gaps on knowledge of the care takers on handling these vulnerable groups. This has led to poor oral health and general health of the residents and resulted in poor quality of life.


In I DO CARE 1.0- we managed to give “smile” to some of the elderly. For I DO CARE 2.0 we focused more on educating the care takers as many of them are not properly trained as well as the turnover rate of the care takers are high.



We started with face-to-face sharing sessions in October 2019 and continues to have online sharing sessions after COVID 19 pandemic.

Up until today, we have included KIRKHS, KOM, KOE, KON, KAHS for the continuous education sessions.



In I DO CARE 2.0 also we have a sub project: Smile- a- tone under Dental SASMEC. This project is an outreach project for Orang Asli Village in Sg Mas, Sg Lembing.   We will continue to deliver “Normal dentistry to extraordinary people.”
