The Dentaid Community – giving back and making a difference.
The Dentaid Community is a fantastic way to get more involved with our charity. Whether that’s by volunteering on our mobile dental units in the UK or travelling overseas, delivering our BrightBites oral health presentation in your local school or organising a fundraising event, this is a group of like-minded people who are passionate about improving oral health for underserved communities.
We’d like to keep members of the Dentaid Community up to date with our news so the first step is to sign up to the scheme. That way we can send you details of volunteering opportunities in the UK and overseas, our fundraising events and news. You might also like to become a regular giver so you can make an ongoing contribution to support our work.
It might be that you’ve volunteered with Dentaid in the past and want to share your experiences by writing a blog or delivering a talk to inspire others.
Or maybe you’d like to organise a fundraising event in your practice or donate equipment to support our work. Dentaid community members will be invited to share their expertise and skills by volunteering in the UK or overseas, joining an advisory group or being part of our oral health programmes.
As Dentaid grows, we’d like to create a network of local support groups across the UK that will help us to meet the huge demand for our charitable services.
You’ll be joining a team of people who are passionate about helping the most vulnerable people in our communities to access dental care and oral health programmes. Whether that’s people experiencing homelessness, remote communities around the world, children in areas of social deprivation, asylum seekers, fishing communities or ex-service personnel, every member of the Dentaid Community will play their part in improving their oral health and general wellbeing.
For our dental partners around the world this is a chance to reach more patients and deliver oral health programmes that really will change lives. To sign up for the Dentaid Community click ‘Sign up’ and we’ll give you more information about how to give back and make a difference with Dentaid.
