Abstract

At the university level, the academic community must understand that, for quality education, it is necessary to carry out extension activities to integrate the training of both teachers and students. But what would extension actions be developed for an extremely vulnerable population, such as children with microcephaly? What would be the oral health care protocol guidelines for these individuals? What would this exchange of knowledge be like between the two groups: university and this vulnerable population? Based on these questions, this article proposes to report the experiences of professors and students of the Dentistry course at the State University of Southwest Bahia about oral health practices and challenges in dental care for children with microcephaly based on the principles of universality, equity and integrality.
