Toothache - it's effects are agonising, constant and debilitating

bridge2aid work to address the causes of poverty in some of the poorest communities in the developing world

Our vision is a world free from dental pain, but we need your help!

Welcome to Bridge2Aid

Covid-19 Update

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we are unable to run our normal programmes, and they have been cancelled until the second half of 2022 (pending review). This will give us the time and resources to work on some exciting new projects:


Volunteering opportunities are now full until 2022. 


Bridge2Aid fights the causes of poverty in some of the poorest communities in the developing world.

We do this by strengthening local healthcare systems – specifically by training local healthcare workers in the provision of emergency dental treatment. Oral disease, infection and chronic pain, desperately need to be addressed in these communities to enable people to work, attend school and care for their families. Our sustainable training model provides local health workers with the essential skills they need to improve the lives of people in these local communities for the long term. Initially, we have developed our programme in rural Tanzania, and our long term plan is to roll this training out to any country where there is a need.

Bridge2Aid believes that everybody has the right to safe emergency dental care.

Since 2004 Bridge2Aid has now provided training which has given access to safe emergency dental care for nearly 6 million people in Tanzania. We have done this through sending volunteers from the UK dental community to train rural health workers. We are saving lives and freeing millions more from the prospect of misery and pain. In 2020 we will be piloting our programmes in Malawi.

More than 70% of the world’s population has no access to the most simple dental pain relief, leaving billions to face a daily battle with pain in the toughest of life circumstances. There is a desperate need to tackle oral disease, infection and chronic pain in communities throughout the developing world. Our work in rural communities means people are able to function free from pain, and avoid the risk of preventable infections and diseases.

Thank you for your interest in Bridge2Aid.
