Since the founding of our company, it has been important for us to invest in organisations that share our vision. For this reason, we support the Deutsche Cleft Kinderhilfe e.V. and the Hilfswerk Deutscher Zahnärzte, which strive for different approaches to dental health and for the opportunity to give children a carefree laugh.
Read more about both organisations below.
A particular wish is to help children with cleft lip and palate. The cleft lip and palate is one of the most common congenital deformaties in humans. Untreated cleft formation has far-reaching health consequences. Children can not eat and drink properly, they are functionally impaired and severely impaired by hearing deficits in speech development as a result of clefting. In addtion to this, psychological problems arise as a result of social exclusion. While the treatment of patients in Germany is usually ensured at a high level by specialised cleft lip and palate centres, children in many developing countries are excluded from any medical care. In addition, deficiency and malnutrition during pregnancy favour the accumulation of deformaties.
We support Deutsche Cleft Kinderhilfe e. V. in Freiburg. The Deutsche Cleft Kinderhilfe is active in 12 countries. It provides information on prevention and therapy, and finances the surgeries and the necessary accompanying therapies such as speech therapy.
We support the Foundation for Aid to German Dentists, which has become a cornerstone of the social commitment of the German dentists. It was founded in May 1987 by the dentist Carl Heinz Bartels from Göttingen and is the result of the sponsorship of Lower Saxony dentists for areas affected by lepracy first founded in 1981. In addition to supporting leprosy projects, the aid organization promotes (dental) medical projects primarily by setting up dental practices and medical wards in various regions of South America, Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe. It also initiates dental prophylaxis programs. Aid has been provided ovver many years in the form of donations to various institutions helping with the construction of children's homes, schools and vocational training centers.
