Our Charitable Partners

{my}dentist supports two key charity partners, Dementia UK and Bridge2Aid.

In 2021 we began fundraising for Dementia UK after more than 2,000 {my}dentist colleagues picked the charity as our official partner.

Dementia UK

Dementia-UK

People with dementia may be more likely to have poor oral health as they either have difficulty caring for themselves or cannot communicate that they have a problem. Through activities such as sponsored walks, head shaves, car washes and more, our teams are raising funds for Dementia UK’s Admiral Nurses who give practical support and advice to carers.

Bridge2Aid

Bridge 2 aid

We also have a long-standing partnership with Bridge2Aid which provides a sustainable solution to basic dentistry needs in remote communities overseas. The charity organises for volunteers from the UK to visit its projects and train local healthcare workers in dentistry, meaning communities have life-saving access to emergency dentistry for the first time. We donate to the charity every time a dentist or dental nurse is successfully referred to us and fund volunteer places for our team to work with Bridge2Aid.

Further charity fundraising

Prior to 2021, our official charity partner was Cancer Research UK. Over four years our teams across the UK raised funds to support important research projects. In total, we raised more than £300,000 through a huge range of activities.
