Charitable Gifts And Dental Novelties On The BDA Christmas Shopping List, UK11 Nov 2010
The British Dental Association (BDA) has unveiled a collection of Christmas gifts that will appeal to the dental community. It features both a range of charity gifts in association with Dentaid, the UK-based oral health charity dedicated to improving oral health around the world, and dental-themed gifts which offer novel varieties of everyday items.
A variety of gift packages to fund dental care in the developing world are available. Created by Dentaid, packages range in cost from £15, which would help produce and distribute oral health education kits, to £500 which would provide medical and dental care for a whole year for an orphanage in Cambodia. Donors will receive a gift card informing the recipient how their 'gift' has been put to use. This campaign provides practitioners with an alternative way to contribute to the promotion of good oral health in keeping with the spirit of the season. One hundred per cent of the revenue from this campaign goes to Dentaid.
Amongst the range of gift items are a collection of dentistry-themed cartoon prints in high-quality, hand-made frames which can be ordered either individually or as a set of four. Golf fanatics will appreciate the tooth-shaped 'cavi-tees' and ball markers, while those refurbishing the practice might find the tooth floor lamp adds a fun and funky finishing touch. Meanwhile, the matching tooth and brush cufflinks are an understated but witty accessory for the sartorially inclined.
Orders can be placed now here. BDA members benefit from discounted prices and enjoy free delivery on the gift items only. Orders for pre-Christmas delivery must be placed before 17 December.
