Dental Mavericks
A group of outgoing, energetic and adventurous entrepreneurs connected to dentistry whose aim is to give back, by ending dental pain for the children of Morocco. Just imagine, living with your family in an isolated fishing village with no dentists , a high sugar diet , no toothbrushes and no fluoride tooth paste. You don't need to be a dentist to imagine the consequences, but the dental neglect shocks even the most experienced of this group of national dentists and their team. Abscesses, pain and distress, parents of these children in Morocco are no different to any other around the world, they want their children helping. Maybe a little pebble in a big pond but three years ago a group of dentists from around the UK came together to form the Dental Maverick charity to provide dental care in remote areas of the world Expanding significantly in 2012,the Mavericks numbered a team of 15, including 8 clinicians and their support staff of dental nurses and admin staff. Excited at the prospect of providing restorative fillings for the first time to complement the inevitable extraction work load the Mavericks met up in Southern Spain for the ferry journey to Morocco. Laden with a tremendous range of clinical equipment donated by incredible dental company generosity and public donation, dental care we take for granted headed for a North Africa desperate for the services of this western team.

   The liverpool dental spa team intend to return to the mountain village of Azni  to treat children in dental pain during our last visit we lost count after 600 teeth extracted over a 2 day period some children had walked four hours to get to the village in most cases that is the usual trip they make to school everyday untill they get fed up at 11 years old and will then to go on look after goats if they are lucky. Eva Branson has worked tirelessly to help these children learn crafts so they may find some kind of employment we hope to visit them and re visit one of the schools eva built for the village 

Their diet consists of rice  boiled with blocks of sugar rolled in bread and baked in honey so tooth decay is seen in every child 

on our last visit we did find a local barber who worked as a dentist in a tent in the local market who removed teeth with no anaesthetic and forceps .

as we were leaving and had packed up a little girl arrived after walking 4 hours she was in pain we had nothing left and could not treat the child it was heart breaking please help the team to go to use the skills we are blessed with thank you so much.
