New name for Dental Health Foundation as it expands globally.
The British Dental Health Foundation charity has been renamed the Oral Health Foundation.
Effective as of Monday, 4 April, the change follows a growing demand it has had recently to deliver support, information and education on oral health throughout the world.
The charity says its name change reflects the significantly broader reach and influence it has established globally since its formation.
Announcing the name change, Janet Goodwin, president of the Oral Health Foundation, said: “Since the charity was formed we have undergone remarkable progression and development as an organisation; this has been particularly evident since the turn of the 21st century.
“In this time we have taken on some challenging and exciting new projects and developed many key partnerships; as well as expanding our work internationally.
“Due to this, we felt it was time that we had an identity which not only reflected the important work, reach and diversity we have achieved over the last 45 years, but also one which will enable us to continue to move forward, build many more effective partnerships and develop stronger ties between dental and health professionals and the public around the world.
“Our new name reflects this perfectly and, alongside a reinvigorated focus, we are all really excited about what is ahead of us.”
