Bridge2aid received a £500 donation at The Dentistry Show from the proceeds of Alif Moosajee’s book,
The Smiling Dentist.
The book, written as a tool for patients to better understand dental treatments and for students to learn how to communicate treatment more effectively to patients, has now sold over 700 copies worldwide on Amazon, with all proceeds going to Bridge2aid.
‘I wrote this jargon-free guide to try and help patients to understand how to look after themselves better and also to gain an insight into what dentists can offer them, apart from just occlusal amalgams,’ Alif Moosajee said.
‘I have also had nice feedback from non clinical people who work in the industry who tell me they have gained a great insight from reading the book.
‘I really wanted to do something good with the book too, and saw an opportunity.
‘I thought if I could donate all of the proceeds to a worthwhile cause that would be a really nice thing to do.
‘I think that Bridge2aid does fantastic work and I’m delighted to be able to support them.’
