About GCDF

The Global Child Dental Fund (GCDFund) is a UK-based charity whose mission is to ensure that the most disadvantaged children, from the most deprived communities around the world, have access to dental care and do not suffer from obvious dental decay in their lifetime.

We pursue this mission by:

  • Building a cadre of senior dental leaders capable of effecting profound improvements to the provision of dental healthcare at local, national and global levels.
  • Improving the oral health of the world’s most disadvantaged children through our Smiles & Hopes projects.
  • Increasing social responsibility in the dentistry profession, particularly in the emerging generation of dentists and dental leaders

“We believe every child can and should have a healthy smile because oral health is crucial for general health and well-being”
Professor Raman Bedi, Chairman
