The Dental Technologists Association (DTA) annually supports a charity chosen by its members, and in 2016 worked with and supported Dentaid, an international charity that sends volunteer dentists, donated equipment, and dental supplies to projects all over the world where people are suffering due to a lack of dental care.
As part of the campaign, DTA members were invited to contribute equipment and materials, and donate a £1 to Dentaid when paying their annual membership subscription. The campaign was highly successful with equipment and materials donated to the value of around £60,000, as well as £210 donated by members.
DTA President James Green (pictured left) was delighted to present a cheque for £210 to Dentaid’s John Elkins at the DTS event in May. For more information about Dentaid go to www.dentaid.org
For 2017 DTA members have chosen to support Crisis, the national charity for homeless people.
