Dentaid is a busy and exciting charity that has worked in more than 70 countries since it was founded in 1996. We are committed to supporting the work of in-country dentists and healthcare professionals by providing equipment, funding outreach programmes and sending teams of volunteers to work alongside them.
We are passionate about empowering dental professionals and making a difference to people’s lives. Around the world there are 3.9 billion people with dental decay which can affect their general health and wellbeing. Many don’t have access to safe, sustainable dental care and Dentaid works tirelessly to change this.
Our volunteering teams provide free, pain relieving dental care for thousands of people every year. Dentaid also provides training, peer support and resources for our dental partners. Equally important are our oral health education projects which are delivered around the world
