In 2010, after a visit to a remote fishing village in El Jebah, North East Morocco, Tony and Cally Gedge from Marketing Pirates of Dentistry had a vision to help Moroccan children gain access to pain free dentistry.
Seven founding trustees of a new adventurous charity started to take shape.
Never undertaken by any UK dentist, Michael Oliver, Chris Branfield, Teresa and Mike Day, Jas Sandhu, Cally and Tony Gedge, took part in an eight-day charity expedition 24th September – 1 October 2010.
Another trip is planned for this year and lots more practices have become involved with fundraising and donations of equipment.
The aim is to leave a legacy of health care, hygiene and education at the school in El Jebah in the Rif Mountains of Morocco.
Since then the Dental Mavericks have been back to Morocco numerous times to help the children, not only from El Jebah, but from many of the surrounding areas.
