TANDEX to support Dental, Diabetes & Asthma Health Camp 2019Featured Products Promotional Features
Posted by: The Probe 23rd January 2019
TANDEX is working with the charity Satya Samaj UK and Parmarth Niketan to provide toothbrushes for underprivileged adults and children in India, as part of the Dental, Diabetes & Asthma (DDA) Health Camp 2019.
In March, nine dental students from the University of Birmingham will travel to the Rishikesh and Himalayanregion to spend five days delivering essential health services to people with limited access to basic healthcare facilities.
Mr Vinod Lodhia, project lead for Satya Samaj UK, is working alongside Dr Upen Patel, Clinical Lecturer and Honorary Specialty Registrar in Restorative Dentistry at the University of Birmingham. Upen is the clinical lead for the project and had this to say:
“Maintaining good oral care is essential for everyone and it is unacceptable that there are people in the world who do not have access to the simplest of cleaning aids such as a toothbrush and toothpaste. These simplest of items can help to keep the mouth healthy by reducing the risk of dental decay and gum disease, which can also lead to further health problems.
“The toothbrushes donated by TANDEX will allow the volunteers of the Dental, Diabetes and Asthma Health Camp – which is sponsored by the charity Satya Samaj UK – to help those underprivileged people of the Rishikesh and Himalayan region of India. The dental volunteers will provide an oral health check, required treatment and show each patient how to clean their teeth and gums effectively to prevent disease. The donation of these toothbrushes means that people can continue to look after their teeth and gums, preventing oral diseases, which can make a big difference to their day-to-day lives.”
TANDEX will supply adult, junior, child and baby toothbrushes for the group to distribute.
Jeannie Heart Strømsborg, managing director of TANDEX says: “TANDEX has always been keen to support oral health projects around the world. Access to preventive dental care and a toothbrush should be a fundamental right, not a privilege. We wish Dr Patel and his team the best of luck for their important venture.”
TANDEX brushes and oral health aids are gentle, efficient and suitable for all ages and dentitions. Each product has been developed following consultation with leading clinicians to ensure that practitioners can offer patients the very best.
