mydentist donates new mobile dental unit

The dental charity in the UK and overseas

The UK’s largest dentistry provider, mydentist, has donated its ‘Smiles Mobile’ to Dentaid to help the charity provide oral health advice and dental treatment to even more vulnerable people in the UK.
It was presented to Dentaid Chief Executive Officer, Andy Evans, and Communications Director, Jill Harding, by Nyree Whitley, Group Clinical Director, and Andrew Powell, Head of Facilities & Construction, at {my}dentist’s support centre in Greater Manchester.
The mobile unit will now support Dentaid in expanding its reach across the UK, providing free dental treatment to even more vulnerable people including people experiencing homelessness who find it difficult to access dental care.

Nyree Whitley, {my}dentist Group Clinical Director, said: “Dentaid provides vital support to people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to access dentistry. 

“We are incredibly grateful to {my}dentist for donating this unit to us,” said Dentaid CEO Andy Evans. “Since the pandemic, demand for our charitable services has skyrocketed and we’re helping more people than ever before.

Now we have this new mobile dental unit we’ll be able to launch more clinics and visit new venues providing emergency dental care and oral health education for people who have no other access to treatment.”

Dentaid has volunteering opportunities across the UK for dentists, dental nurses and assistants. The charity’s clinics take place from Exeter to Cromer and Weymouth to York and patients include head and neck cancer patients, fishermen, ex-service personnel, refugees and asylum seekers, people recovering from drug and alcohol misuse and schoolchildren in areas of high social deprivation.
“We are always delighted to hear from new volunteers,” added Andy. “We make sure it’s a very rewarding and positive experience and our patients are always so grateful. “Not only can we help them out of dental pain we can also help to restore their confidence. Dental care really can help to transform their lives.”
