The Campaign for World Wide Smiles
Dentaid is thrilled to be partnering with Oral-B to launch the Campaign for World Wide Smiles.
Throughout October and November, when you buy an Oral-B manual toothbrush, a donation will be made to Dentaid. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), 87.5 per cent of the world’s 6.5 billion people suffer from tooth decay. In developed countries the solution is a trip to the dentist, but in disadvantaged communities there just aren’t enough dentists to go around. Some seek treatment from untrained ‘street dentists’ using inappropriate, unsterilized tools, risking HIV and hepatitis. Others live with agonising tooth pain and often develop diseases. Hundreds of thousands of people die each year as a result.
Funds raised by the Campaign for Worldwide Smiles will be used to fund a Dentaid project at the Sappuro Dental College & Hospital, Dhakata, Bangaldesh.
