SmileStar

SmileStar, a UK charity was established in 2010 with the aim of providing free, quality dental care to disadvantaged communities in African countries and India as well as to ex-Royal Marines in the UK.

The charity has been able to improve the dental health to over 5,000 people in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and India. A charity hospital has been set up in Gujarat in North West India which treats general patients as well as providing dental treatment and services also extend to eye surgery.

Closer to home, SmileStar has joined forces with the Royal Marines Charity (formerly with The C Group) to provide ex-Royal Marines with free dental care (www.theroyalmarinescharity.org.uk). Throughout the UK, over 475 Royal Marines who have had to retire due to injury are supported by SmileStar who provide free dental care for the rest of their lives. 75 participating dental practices nationwide have signed up to offer this free dental care to ex-marines. We welcome all dental practices to support SmileStar charity.

I am truly privileged and humbled to be the BACD President this year.

It is an honour to lead an Academy, that I have been a member of for many years, and continue the great work of previous Presidents and Boards.

I am looking forward to see the Academy’s continued growth through education and inspiration.
