Dental charity Dentaid is working with a team of Ugandan dentists with a bid to fund them to travel to rural villages with the following objectives:
• To carry out general oral health education (OHE)
• To sensitise communities on the dangers and prevention of infant oral mutilation (IOM)
• To screen children and establish their oral health status
• To provide a pain-relief service of emergency extraction and atraumatic restorative treatment.
A sponsorship of £35 will go towards one day’s travel and professional expenses.
£420 will help a dentist to provide this outreach for one day per month for one year.
