The Dental Wellness Trust

Flame Health Dentistry are keen to talk about the Dental Charities within the UK. The team feel that they do enormous amounts of work to support deprived communities with no oral health help.
The Dental Wellness Trust is bringing together organisations and skilled volunteers from around the world to introduce oral healthcare to deprived communities and to provide emergency treatment and create long-term, sustainable healthcare solutions.
One of the Trust's most recent projects is in conjunction with The Point Foundation, a registered charity that looks to support orphans in Africa, predominantly in Rwanda and South Africa.
Dr Itzi Weinberg, a respected dentist from Zurich, was sent to Rwanda in May to visit two orphanages: the Noel orphanage and Kimisagra.
During his two-week visit, he performed dental check ups using exam kits sponsored by Henry Schein and recorded the results to give the DWT a clear view of the children's oral health and level of need.
"There had never been a dentist to the orphanages and most of the kids had never seen a dentist before," says Dr Weinberg, a practising dentist and owner of a dental practice in Switzerland.
They brought 1,000 toothbrushes donated by the DWT to give to the children and filled in a form for every child that was examined.
The Dental Wellness Trust is calling for more volunteers like Dr Weinberg, who have the compassion and clinical skills to transform the quality of life for people who have nowhere else to turn.
Flame Health Dentistry think that the hard work that Dr Weinberg put into visiting these two orphanages is truly astounding.
