The DentaidBox

Dentaid sends portable dental surgeries in a DentaidBox. This is an entire dental surgery that fits into a wheelie bin! It includes a fully adjustable dental chair, a pressure cooker for sterilising, a range of instruments and oral health education resources. For £2500 sponsorship we can supply a DentaidBox anywhere in the world.

In recent years DentaidBoxes have been used for dental clinics in refugee camps in Calais and Greece and have been sent to our partners in countries including Malawi, Zambia, Guinea, Cambodia, Uganda, Cameroon, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea.

Some projects prefer not to have the wheelie bin and in these cases we package the chair and contents into specially made rucksacks.
