We so need dentists

We so need dentists

Imagine having toothache and not being able to see a dentist – for weeks. In Calais this is reality. If you’ve ever had an abscess just think about the pain.

So this weekend we were overjoyed to be joined by a fabulous team of volunteer dentists from Focus4Hope. Not only are they fully qualified professionals they brought a kitted out van and have treated hundreds of people this weekend, some who have been waiting for months.

The performed fillings and even extractions, treated infections investigated underlying issues. Seeing a man, who previously could barely talk, actually laugh and smile because his pain was gone was a real joy to behold.

This is what Imran Rangzeb from Town Hall Dental had to say about the experience.
