Helping those in need!

23 December 2020

The British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy (BSDHT) is pleased to announce that it has joined forces with the Oral Health Foundation and GSK to work with local charities in the Manchester area, supplying toothpaste to those in need.

These include homeless people, residents in care homes, people who use foodbanks and those who don’t have easy access to dental products or whom may have limited financial resources. This initiative is to promote the fact that toothbrushes and toothpaste are essential, not a luxury. GSK has, therefore, provided 100,000 toothpaste samples for these individuals, which will be distributed by the huge network of volunteers and health professionals who have teamed up to make this a reality.

Diane Rochford, President of the BSDHT commented:

“On behalf of the BSDHT I’d like to thank GSK for their generous donation. These toothpaste samples will make a huge difference to those in need and reinforce the fact that these items are a necessity, not just a luxury for those more fortunate.”
