We raise funds to provide safe dental care to improve access to dentistry


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Dentaid is a charity that improves oral health around the world.

Sadly, there are 1.7 billion people in the world who are suffering from toothache and 70 per cent of the population doesn’t have access to a dentist.

Dentaid’s overseas work involves supporting dental professionals in some of the poorest and most remote communities in the world. Dentaid provides reconditioned dental equipment and portable surgeries which allows more patients to access dental treatment.

The charity funds outreach clinics and send teams of volunteers to work alongside its dental partners running dental clinics in schools, orphanages, refugee camps, prisons and remote community buildings.

Oral health education is a key part of Dentaid’s work and the charity establishes toothbrushing programmes and promotes dental health everywhere they work.

As a Dental Nurse, this is close to my heart and therefore I am volunteering in Uganda for 2 weeks in February 2024 to work alongside the charity and other dental clinicians to provide dental education, care and treatment to the people in these communities.

I am therefore asking for donations which will go towards this amazing cause and help my volunteering journey.

Any donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance
