“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be
compassionate, and to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived
well.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Nepal, a developing south Asian country, has always taken its pride in the beautiful diversities
the nature has bestowed upon us. From the vast sketches of mountains and hills to flat lands;
from the top highest mountains in the world to the deepest gorge; the Terai region of Nepal starts
from just 59 m. to Mount Everest scaling 8848m. Unfortunately, for a country of this size, this
tremendous biodiversity has also been considered as a double edge sword. Most of the regions in
the hilly and mountain region are deprived of facilities that we living in the cities and urban areas
consider a basic need of today. With the lack of any means of transportation reaching these
deserted regions, the health condition of our people is deteriorating by day.
Yes, a substantial change and sustainable development is the ultimate goal for each and every
parts of the country. But until then what can us, as a responsible citizen with professional skills,
can do to serve them?
” Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”- Helen Keller
Travel Dentistry Nepal is a non-profit, fully volunteer based organization led by group of
aspiring dental professionals in Nepal. We have organized and successfully conducted 102+ number
of camps till date from 2017 with the support from our volunteers.
The primary goal is to create awareness, uplift oral health condition and provide community
based dental treatment to people especially in the rural parts, which sorrowfully has always been
the most neglected subject in the country.
TDN is a small effort for now but with all your support we can reach many more of our people
who are unable to reach us. In our practice, short or long, we all have witnessed the change in
attitude of an obstinate patient demanding their own sets of treatment, we all have created a
smile our patients have longed for all their life. If one can make a difference in a single person,
on a single smile, imagine what the effort of all of us in union can do. With this, we are
requesting every dental professionals, students, faculties to please support us in this noble cause
and contribute in any way they can. Let us all unite against the chronic disease of ignorance on
oral health. Let us all reach to our people in desperate need of treatment and care.
Together we can!
