Dentalcare Foundation is a Non-Profit Humanitarian organization founded in 2018 with a view to improve and cater for free oral health care for orphans, children and adults in rural areas. Almost all of the adults and children in rural populations in Nigeria have absolutely no dental care. There is no doubt that there is urgent need for dental care in many of these areas. Most of this people cannot afford neither have they been enlightened about their oral health care. This does not exclude the Orphans. Our aim is to bring quality oral health care to these completely ignored underdeveloped areas, and to make significant difference in the lives of so many people, to see them smile with happiness in their hearts. Helping others is where we find hope.
Dentalcare Foundation was formed with a philosophy in mind: offering quality oral healthcare to the less privileged. Continued improvement and innovative ideas is our policy as this will ensure progress for many years to come. We intend to focus on one simple strategy: Giving the best basic oral healthcare service possible.
