If you’re planning a dental clinic refurb in the new year, did you know you can donate any unwanted equipment to charity?

 

Dentaid is a charity set up to help people suffering from oral pain and prevent them from developing problems in the future.  Sending reconditioned dental equipment is one of the many ways that Dentaid supports dentists working in some of the poorest and most remote communities in the world.

As well as helping some of the 1.3 billion people who have toothache but no access to dental care, Dentaid also runs dental health education programmes and gives British dental professionals regular opportunities to volunteer abroad.

Volunteers run outreach clinics in prisons, orphanages, schools, slum areas and community buildings to provide pain relieving dental treatment for hundreds of people a day.  Its volunteers also help to train and support local dentists by supplying equipment and training.
