November 2009: Nova & Bridge2Aid
Nova Instruments is proud to announce that they have pledged support for Bridge2Aid, a charity dedicated to dental and community development programmes in Tanzania. At Dental Showcase 2009, Karen Turner formally presented Dr Ian Wilson BDS - Bridge2Aid's Chief Executive and Dental Director - with a certificate marking Nova's donation of 50 Instrument Kits. Read on for more information and an exclusive video.
The Instrument Kits that Nova has provided feature products from across the entire Nova range, including forceps, mirrors, tweezers, scalers, probes and more.
Dr Wilson was delighted with Nova's commitment to the cause. "It's phenomenal to get this level of support from a company like Nova. 200,000 people from East Africa alone are in dental pain today, and we have created training programmes using volunteers from the UK to get these people out of pain. Our relationship with Nova allows us to train the clinical officers and get pain relief into these communities."
Karen Turner is equally as enthusiastic, and proud, of Nova's association with such a worthy cause. She adds "The work Bridge2Aid do is a true inspiration. For us to be able to give something back to the profession is a great privilege and I'm honoured to be able to work with them." For more information on Bridge2Aid, click here.
