    The relationship between Henry Schein Minerva and dental charity Bridge2Aid continues to flourish as their desire to create the ultimate student elective programme got off to a fantastic start at the end of 2011.

    Committed to supporting Bridge2Aid and further developing the skills of the dental students, Henry Schein Minerva provided the first four King's College London students with grants to help fund their travel to Tanzania under Bridge2Aid's pilot student elective programme.

    Such generosity enabled the students to spend ten days working alongside Bridge2Aid to experience life and learn about oral healthcare services in Tanzania whilst gaining an understanding of the roles and responsibilities required when working in developing countries.

    Part of the students' project involved carrying out a ‘Satisfaction Survey', interviewing 150 patients on the quality of service and dental treatment provided by the local health workers trained by Bridge2Aid.

    Student Miriam Bouchiba commented: 'It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to work in the villages with the local people.

    'Despite the challenges of carrying out the survey in the heat, it was motivating to discover where improvement is needed. Without the grant, I wouldn't have been able to afford this remarkable experience and I'm grateful to Bridge2Aid and Henry Schein Minerva for their support.'

    Dental charity Dentaid is working with a team of Ugandan dentists with a bid to fund them to travel to rural villages with the following objectives:
    • To carry out general oral health education (OHE)
    • To sensitise communities on the dangers and prevention of infant oral mutilation (IOM)
    • To screen children and establish their oral health status
    • To provide a pain-relief service of emergency extraction and atraumatic restorative treatment.

    A sponsorship of £35 will go towards one day's travel and professional expenses.

    £420 will help a dentist to provide this outreach for one day per month for one year.

    If you would like to help with this important health initiative, please contact Barbara Koffman at or 07970 163 798 for further information, or donate via giving your contact details so that Dentaid can send you feedback on the dentist you have funded.
