Dentaid is proud to be the charity partner of the Straumann Charity Bike Ride 2022

The dental charity in the UK and overseas

25th May 2022

From the 6-10th of September, The Straumann Charity Bike Ride 2022 will see more than 60 cyclists from the dental profession, riding 500 miles from Bilbao to Sitges in Spain.

Between them, they aim to raise a total of £75,000 that will enable Dentaid to provide dental care for under served communities across the UK, including people experiencing homelessness, head, and neck cancer patients, refugees, and asylum seekers, victims of domestic violence, fishermen and their families.

Since the pandemic demand for Dentaid’s services has increased rapidly and more vulnerable people are suffering the misery of untreated toothache than ever before.

The Straumann Charity Bike Ride will help Dentaid visit more communities across the UK with its mobile dental units.

The charity’s dental surgeries on wheels visit hostels, day centres, and community buildings with volunteer dental professionals providing free oral health advice, check-ups, and pain-relieving treatments.

Dentaid CEO, Andy Evans, commented:
“We are so excited to be partnering with Straumann for this year’s Charity Bike Ride. As a keen cyclist, I am very much looking forward to joining the ride as the route looks fantastic and the event is well organised. 
The funds raised will help more people of the most vulnerable people in our communities to access dentistry here in the UK. Hopefully, during the ride, I will also be able to inspire other riders to volunteer their time and skills to help us reach more people.”
