AN Appledore Dental Clinic worker and her team have won an award for their contribution to dental health in Morrocco.
Dr Teresa Day and her team of ‘dental mavericks’ paid for their own trip last year to El Jebah, Northern Morocco to help 50 children in desperate need of a check-up.
She said: “Morocco doesn’t have an NHS and their public health does not extend to dental care.
“It was great to be able to help these kids and give something back.
“Winning an award helps us get more exposure to find sponsors so we can go back and do it again.
“It’s also nice to get some recognition too.”
The group plan to return to Morocco in September to attend to more children.
