International dental charity Dentaid is bringing its mobile dental unit to The Dentistry Show as part of charity partnership.
Dentaid’s mobile dental unit will be on stand L100 at The Dentistry Show at Birmingham’s NEC. Visitors will be able to climb on board and learn more about the charity’s work providing dental care for homeless and vulnerable people. The mobile unit also visits schools to provide oral health education for schoolchildren and is used to deliver dental projects across the country.
The Dentistry Show is also a great opportunity for visitors to learn more about Dentaid’s volunteering trips around the world. The charity has recently launched new projects in Zambia, Sri Lanka and The Philippines and there are still a few places on our trips to Uganda and Cambodia in 2018.
A key area of Dentaid’s work is sending reconditioned dental equipment to dentists overseas. Practices looking to donate items will be able to give details at Dentaid’s stand. The charity is also fundraising to provide more DentaidBoxes – entire dental surgeries that fit into a wheelie bin and can be used to set up dental clinics in some of the most remote parts of the world.
Dentaid is particularly excited to be on a stand next to Bridge2Aid after the two dental charities announced a year-long fundraising partnership called Together Dental. Guests will be able to learn more about the charities’ joint fundraising programme and see how their support can improve access to dental care in some of the poorest and most remote communities in the world.
“We are delighted to be attending this year’s Dentistry Show it will be a fantastic opportunity for us to meet dental professionals and tell them about our work in the UK and overseas,” said Dentaid’s CEO, Andy Evans. “We are very grateful that The Dentistry Show has chosen to support Dentaid and hope that as a result of attending the show we’ll be able to help more people in the most remote and poorest parts of the world to access the dental care they need. This will also be a great opportunity to update the dental sector about Together Dental – our joint fundraising programme with Bridge2Aid, which we are very excited about.”
