In this episode of The Probe Dental Podcast, Dr Linda Greenwall discusses the formation of her charity: the Dental Wellness Trust.
Established in 2011, the Dental Wellness Trust charity has one simple mission and that’s to improve the general health and wellbeing of children through dental wellness – especially those most in need.
The charity’s LiveSmart supervised tooth brushing programme addresses the ever-worsening crisis of child dental health. Initially set up to help communities in Dr Greenwall’s home country of South Africa (with over 80% tooth decay rates in children under 5 years old), it is now being rolled out in schools and nurseries across parts of the UK.
In addition to discussing the Dental Wellness Trust’s aims and the LiveSmart campaign, Dr Greenwall speaks about how rewarding charity work can be, as well as how others can involved through volunteering or interning – particularly student dentists looking for a more unique experience.
