Our clinical director Robert Dyas Joined over 40 dentists and technicians cycling over 450 miles through the Pyrenees for the dental charity Bridge2Aid. Travelling from the east coast Cap D'Adge through to the west coast San Sebastian and climbing over 33,000 feet, this was certainly a challange!
Robert explains 'I have always been an active supporter of bridge2Aid having been out to Tanzania and seen the fantastic work they do and as a very keen cyclist, the opportunity was too good to miss. Its something I would never have done without Straumann, Just pedal and Bridge2Aid.'
The group did an amazing job and should be so proud of their hardwork for such a worthy cause. Robert reveals 'I've made some life long friends, pushing ourselves to the absolute limit physically and getting through it together. The constant hills/mountains and riding for 5 days in this type of environment was really tough but very rewarding'.
There is a desperate need to tackle oral disease, infection and chronic pain throughout the developing world - to enable people to work, attend school and care for families. Bridge2Aid teach skills that mean local people are able to function free from pain, and avoid preventable infections and diseases.
ProDental CPD are proud to support Bridge2Aid as a Unity Partner.
