A shocking statistic is that 70% of the world’s population has no access to emergency dental care and Luke explained: 'I found that figure horrifying and tried to put myself in the position of a person with excruciating toothache, knowing nothing could be done. That galvanised me into doing something about it.'
By becoming a unity partner, Luke and his team are sponsoring the training of a Tanzanian clinical officer in Tanzania so that less people will have to face this nightmare in future.
'I think that all successful businesses should give something back and help make a difference. In fact it has also helped inspire my team and give us all a focus away from the bench,' Luke said.
