Welcome to the home of the British Dental Health Foundation! We are an independent charity dedicated to improving oral health - in the UK and around the world.
The charity provides an exclusive range of dental patient information consisting of frequently asked questions about dental terms and treatment procedures, oral hygiene, and all you need to about in order to take care of your dental health.
Our Dental Helpline, staffed by fully trained oral health experts and dental nurses, gives free and impartial dental advice. We can help you on subjects such as current UK legislation and regulations, NHS and private dental charges.
The dental health blog is exploring the latest news and issues of the heart of dentistry and oral health, includes opinion, comments, facts, tips and information.
The Foundation evaluates consumer oral health care products to ensure that manufacturers' product claims are clinically proven and not exaggerated. Currently there are over 150 approved products on sale in 80 countries around the world.
A British-born Amazonian cowboy's lifelong quest to bring free health services to America has had his story told as part of a feature-length documentary.
Stan Brock, originally from Preston, founded the Remote Area Medical charity in 1985, and has since provided more than £35 million of free healthcare to around 300,000 people in the US, including vital dental care, examinations and treatment.
His inspiring and challenging story about an unlikely man on an unwavering and improbable mission to confront one of the biggest social issues in America - an issue of which, thanks to the NHS, we might take for granted here in the UK.
You can watch the documentary Medicine Man: The Stan Brock Story from the Indiegogo website.
The British filmmakers are also seeking donations to be able to continue telling his story. Fundraising has 6 days to go, closing on May 11, so please help them by making a contribution. Thank you.
