With appropriate dental treatment, a dental infection can be treated quite easily. However, in rare cases, complications can occur. Most complications arise as a result of spreading bacterial infection when the cause is left untreated.
In Tanzania, people die for complications of untreated dental infection. Some are ever left disabled for life from infections speeding to the bone (osteomyelitis).
People in Tanzania struggle to make ends meet, paying for dental treatment seems like a luxury to them.
No one should die of a tooth ache, and there are less than 150 qualified dentists in Tanzania, for a population of 50 million - 1:450,000 ratio
Our aim is to rid anyone of their pain and eliminate the risky of spread of infections. Dental screening and treatment camps will be carried out every 6 months in different rural areas and continue with yearly monitoring to make sure people remain disease free
We need your help to make all this possible!!
