Smiles Overseas The Hardwick Foundation Efforts in Kenya

Certol is proud to support charitable organizations that provide care to those in need. This year we donated 300 Needle Sheath Props to The Hardwick Foundation to aid in their efforts overseas.

The Mission Begins

The Hardwick Foundation went to Basecamp Maasai Mara and Talek Medical Clinic for the first time this year after seeing firsthand the need for dental care in that area. They brought a small team of dentists, hygienists and assistants to care for a total of 191 patients and perform 258 procedures in 4 days. They brought over their own equipment and set up an entire dental office to help the community.

The work they were able to do in Kenya was greatly appreciated by the community and life changing for many! 

Patient Experiences

A teacher brought his student in who was in agonizing pain. Her tooth needed to be extracted immediately. The procedure was a success and the 15-year-old was able to take her National Exam pain free!

A young man was unable to eat or sleep for four days due to a serve toothache. He rode his bike for 1 ½ hours to be able to get the treatment he needed from The Hardwick Foundation. He left with no pain and was finally able get some sleep!

The Mission Continues

The impact that The Hardwick Foundation had on the community in Kenya is inspiring. They have already accepted the invitation to return next year! Certol will continue to support their efforts to bring dental care to those in need.
