About

In many parts of the developing world, especially in rural areas, millions of people have no access to dental care and suffer with the constant pain of toothache, abscesses and diseases (including[url=http://www.dentalhealth.org/tell-me-about/topic/mouth-cancer/mouth-cancer]mouth cancer[/url])with no hope of relief. Due to a lack of oral health education most do not understand the cause of their pain. Yet, western sugary drinks and snacksare readily and cheaply available even in the most remote areas of the developing world.Although toothbrushes and toothpaste are available in developing countries, they are usually too expensive for the average person.

Event details

DentAid Uganda 2016

I will be flying to Uganda in Africa to deliver dental treatment to disadvantaged rural areas with hopes to put a smile on their faces :)
I am a dental therapist from Manchester, UK. I qualified in 2013 and have been working for just over two years. I am really passionate about Dentistry and health and love helping people and making a difference to people's lives. I am really looking forward to providing dental care treatment to the rural areas of Uganda in Africa.
