Dental health is taken for granted in many developed countries however according to the World Health Organisation 60-90% of school children and nearly 100% of adults around the world have dental cavities. These statistics are highest amongst poor and disadvantaged communities who are unaware of how to prevent these diseases.
A lack of targeted education and awareness around the subject of oral hygiene is responsible for the pain and discomfort experienced by these cohorts.
The Dental Wellness Trust was founded in May 2011 by leading London dentist Dr Linda Greenwall, fulfilling her long-envisioned life goal of setting up a dental charity to help those in need. The charity aims to provide tailored oral health education programmes for children, the elderly and also to circulate good practice amongst oral health practitioners.
The charity and it’s many committed members work closely with the local community to raise awareness of the importance of oral health amongst families, teach how better to clean their teeth and also to raise funds to support the oral health programmes these communities are in need of.
