Support Dentaid by Walking the Test another Way and help raise vital funds.
Dentaid is dental charity that works tirelessly to improve access to safe, sustainable dental care in the UK and overseas.
Since it was founded in 1996, Dentaid has worked in more than 70 countries, running outreach dental clinics and oral health education programmes in many of the poorest and most remote communities in the world. In recent years, the charity has launched a growing number of UK projects that provide emergency dental care for homeless and vulnerable people and those who struggle to access NHS dental treatment.
Dentaid’s overseas projects involve equipping and supporting local dentists all year round. This is enhanced by regular volunteering opportunities where British dental professionals work alongside our overseas partners. Together they run outreach clinics in prisons, orphanages, schools, slum areas and remote community buildings providing pain relieving dental treatment for hundreds of people a day. Oral health education is a key part of Dentaid’s work, and the teams establish fluoride varnish and tooth brushing programmes for thousands of children every year.
Dentaid’s UK work continues to expand with a mobile dental unit that travels to day centres, homeless shelters and community facilities providing free dental care for people who find it hard to access NHS dental treatment.
