Dental Mavericks Trip May 16
DAY ONE in Asni – 23rd May 2016 the Dental Mavericks saw 230 kids and teens seen. 84 for extractions – many of them quite difficult. Lots of hugs from grateful patients and parents.
DAY TWO in Asni. Another 180 children and teens taken out of pain.
Dr Teresa is one of the founders of the Award Winning Dental Mavericks Charity, who organise the annual expedition. Dr Teresa and Sarah will finance their own trips plus Dr Teresa loses revenue while away from her Bracknell business.
Cally Gedge, co-founder from Dental Mavericks Charity said, “This is our 7th year, and this Moroccan community now relies on UK dentists to rid them from the daily pain of decayed teeth.”
To cover the cost of their 4 day humanitarian trip to treat the children in the remote Moroccan villages, they have held a raffle, a charity bike ride, received donations from friends, family & patients and donations from suppliers including a massive £750.00 from Myobrace. Grateful thanks to everyone who donated, the children will receive the benefits and they will be so happy to be out of pain.
Donations are still being taken at JUST GIVING

“You Have Changed My Life”

Paul Giles Dr Teresa with Appledore’s £5k dream smile competition winner Paul discussing the next stage of his treatment which is a tooth coloured filling and removal of stitches from his recent tooth extraction.
Paul Giles, our Jack fm winner has had 3 visits to Appledore now. We’ve finished the first stage of his treatment. He’s had 6 broken down infected teeth extracted and 3 big fillings. He was very brave. That’s the nasty stuff over!
He now has a little rest from us for around 4 weeks after which we will see him to check all is healing well and take a new x-ray. If all is healthy and he has completely stopped smoking we will be placing some implants for him. We sent him off to Berkshire Vapers to get an E cigarette to help him off the ciggies.
Paul says ‘As the winner of the worst smile in Berkshire competition with Appledore dental clinic and JACK FM,i was so excited about winning, then the reality set in with the amount of work i needed done,I was so nervous but thanks to Teresa Day and the team i was made to feel so relaxed and reassured it felt like ive known them all for ages.
I’m currently halfway though my treatment and looking forward to my implants for the smile I’ve always wanted’.
