This year, the AOG is planning a trip to South Africa in February 2012.
The trip, aimed at all dentists, is designed to invite people from all over the world to join in with the work AOG does.
For the past 40 years, the group has expanded, extended their contacts and become a magnet for like-minded dentists, their staff and their families.
Towards the end of the 2012 trip to South Africa will be the two-day CIC Conference in Cape Town.
Top international and national speakers discuss the latest in restorative dentistry, aethetics, endodontics and implants.
Confirmed speakers are Dr Ahok Seht, Professor Peetvan der Vyver, Professor Mahesh Verma, Dr Arun Nayyar, Professor Sudeshni Naidoo, Raj RajaTayan OBE, Dr Mike Holmes, Dr Wyman Chan, Dr Jurie Steyn and Dr Raj Rattan.
This well established event will give everyone a chance to see the best speakers discuss topics aimed to teach, inspire and motivate.
The AOG believes in charity and congeniality.
Currently, they are raising funds for the building of a rehabilitation centre for disable people in Musoma.
On their charitable trips, participants are encouraged to let their hair down and enjoy themselves. The 2012 trip to South Africa includes a tour of Cape Town, with a scenic coastal drive through Clifton and Sea Point.
Later the tour passes the Houses of Parliament, the Castle, the SA Museum and a few other historical sights of interest such as District Six, Bo-Kaap and Slave Lodge. A cable car ride up Table Mountain and wine tasting at Constantina is also included in the trip on 22 February.
The day before the conference is a full day Peninsula tour that looks set to show participants the best of the spectacular Cape Peninsula.
Later on in the day there is a chance to visit the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. The day will finish with a drive along the Indian Ocean coastline, with a visit to Boulders Beach and a chance to sit among the famous colony of Jackass Penguins.
In the evening after a short stop at the naval port of Simon’s Town, dinner will once again be provided at an exquisite Indian Restaurant.
The AOG trip to South Africa is not the only option for a fundraising awareness visit.
There will also be a charity trip to open the Disability Centre in Tanzania and Nairobia AOG Conference with Masai Mara.
During the last 40 years all AOG activities have led to a charitable contribution as a matter of habit, with the idea to give something back in gratitude for all they had received.
