Dentaid: The Dental Charity filling in the gaps in dental care

Key points

  • Dentaid The Dental Charity is one of the biggest dental charities based in the UK, providing accessible dental care to communities overseas, but also to a growing number of communities in the UK.

  • In the UK, the charity has a fleet of seven mobile dental units and trailers to provide care to vulnerable communities, such as people who experience homelessness, as well as running their BrightBites oral health promotion programme to school children.

  • As oral health inequalities are widening and disproportionately affecting socially excluded groups, the need for the work Dentaid does is rapidly increasing.
