exocad, an Align Technology company and dental CAD/CAM software provider, donated €10,000 to the Germany-based nonprofit Mini Molars Cambodia. A portion of the donation included proceeds collected during a charitable T-shirt sales campaign held at the exocad event “Insights 2022” and donations from exocad employees worldwide.
Mini Molars representatives said the donation will be used to support the organisation’s work providing dental care to children in Cambodia without regular access to dental care.
“We see many children who have been in chronic pain and unable to attend school because of dental problems,” said Dr. Ulf Zuschlag, dentist and founder of Mini Molars. “This donation will help more than 600 children onto a healthier and happier path.”
Mini Molars began in 2015 with the goal to help develop a sustainable oral health programme in Cambodia, targeting underprivileged children who live in Phnom Penh and surrounding communities with the greatest need.
exocad is proud to contribute to this endeavor. “Young people are among the most vulnerable populations suffering from oral health disease,” said Novica Savic, CCO and general manager, exocad. “We’re glad we can support Mini Molars’ outreach to those who have the greatest need for dental care.”
Mini Molars provides dental care at a pagoda in Phnom Penh that hosts other aid projects and serves children from schools. Mini Molars workers also travel with mobile treatment units to communities throughout Cambodia to bring dental care to those in need.
