By raising funds for a Rotary DentaidBox your Rotary club will enable thousands of people to receive safe, affordable dental care. Each box is sent to a local dentist or dental project run by a Dentaid-approved NGO working in a country where access to dental care is extremely scare.
A DentaidBox is a self-contained, portable dental surgery containing a folding dental chair, pressure cooker for sterilization, pump, dental instruments and large supply of dental consumables. Because the equipment is so easy to transport, a DentaidBox allows a local dentist to run outreach clinics in remote communities and treat people who would find it almost impossible to get to their clinics. DentaidBoxes are taken to schools, orphanages, community centres and prisons to help more people access dental care.
Dentaid has recently sent DentaidBoxes to refugee camps in Europe, Guinea, Vanuatu and Malawi. However we are always getting new requests from dentists and organisations who can see the benfit of providing outreach dentistry in some of the poorest and most remote regions of the world. It costs £1500 plus shipping to buy a box and we make sure your club is informed where your DentaidBox is going and the people who will benefit from your kind donation.
