IADR Outreach, June 2014

In June 2014 the Dental Wellness Trust visited Cape Town to facilitate two outreach days in conjunction with the International Association of Dental Research assembly.

Run in partnership with the University of the Western Cape, the DWT received generous help and donations from Colgate, Henry Schein, DMG, Ikamva Labantu, Afrika Tikkun and SDI. During the two days at the Afrika Tikkun school, the volunteers screened nearly 300 children and carried out treatments where appropriate.

The event was hugely inspiring. Help from our partners allowed us to help hundreds of kids who do not have access to oral health education or treatment.

Thanks to all who volunteered and sponsored the event.
