Dentaid is an international dental charity committed to improving oral health around the world. Over the last 22 years Dentaid has worked in more than 70 countries to improve access to dentistry and oral health education.
By equipping and supporting local dentists, running teeth screening, fluoride application and toothbrushing programmes and giving British dental professionals regular opportunities to volunteer abroad, Dentaid works tirelessly to help people suffering from oral pain and prevent them from developing problems in the future.
We work in some of the poorest and most remote communities in the world helping some of the 1.3billion people who have toothache but no access to dental care. Dentaid volunteers run outreach clinics in prisons, orphanages, schools, slum areas and community buildings providing pain relieving dental treatment for hundreds of people a day. Our volunteers also help to train and support local dentists by providing equipment and sharing expertise.
Dentaid’s UK work continues to expand with a mobile dental unit that travels to day centres, homeless shelters and soup kitchens providing free dental care for people who find it hard to access NHS dental treatment. Our volunteers provide dental treatment for some of the most vulnerable people in our society and we have many opportunities for dental professionals to get involved in our work both in the UK and overseas.
