The LUDS has a long tradition of supporting DentAid. We hold exciting and fun-packed events throughout the year to raise money for this worthwhile charity. DentAid is a UK-based charity that provides equipment, training, and oral health servicies to hospitals, clinics, and dentists in the developing world.
|The committee were shocked to learn just how great the need is for better dental care in the developing world. For example, in some parts of Africa, babies are dying of septicemia as a result of having their baby teeth dug out with sharpened bicycle spokes. Parents are mistakenly told that the soft white tooth buds showing under the gum are parasitic worms. |
Your money makes a big difference because it...
There is loads more information on the DentAid website.
|DentAid is a charity that we should all definitely be supporting as dental students and dentists. Not everyone in the world is as fortunate as we are with regard to dental provision. We hope everyone enjoys the charity events we have planned for you this year and that you all donate generously! Anyone with fundraising ideas please contact the committee!|
