Wotton Dental Practice Pledges Continued Support to Bridge2Aid
A dental practice in Wotton-under-Edge, which has already raised thousands of pounds for Bridge2Aid, has pledged continued support to the charity.
The practice has already raised around £200,000 over the course of the last eight years for the charity, which supports projects to train new dentists and provide basic dental care in Tanzania.
Owners Shaenna and Phil Loughnane climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in 2012 and the practice has participated in numerous events over the years to amass huge donations and now, the team is working to support a new project in Tanzania, which is aiming to make a vast improvement to oral care in rural areas.
Nine years ago, the Hope Dental Centre opened in Mwanza, but the clinic has since fallen into disrepair and is no longer fit to provide treatments for patients. Now, the Chipping Manor Dental Practice is helping Bridge2Aid to open a new dental centre, which will be twinned with the Wotton clinic.
Practice manager, Ian Stephens, is currently on sabbatical and has flown to Tanzania to oversee the construction and opening of the new dental clinic. The project is expected to last around three months.
Shaenna Loughnane said that the team is very proud of the work Ian is doing out in Tanzania and everyone is very excited about the opening of the new dental centre, which will provide an excellent base for local practitioners and dental patients.
In total, 19 members of the Chipping Manor practice have helped out on volunteering projects for Bridge2Aid and the team looks forward to supporting more campaigns and programmes in the future.
