Bupa Hygienist marks career milestone with a charitable trip

Bupa Hygienist marks career milestone with charitable trip overseas

Tanya Gilmore, will be taking a break from her day job at Blueapple Dental Care, and travelling to Nepal where she will be providing dental care to the local communities.

Tanya has been with the practice for 13 years, during which time she has developed her skills as a dental hygienist, a role focused on preventing and treating gum disease.

Organised by dental charity Oral Care for Developing Counties, Tanya’s volunteering trip to Nepal this September will include visiting a remote village in Gorha to provide oral hygiene treatments and oral health education to those who would otherwise not have access to it.

Tanya is also seeking fundraising support to help cover the cost of her trip, as well as donations of dental products, such as toothpastes and toothbrushes, to take with her. Donations are being welcomed either in person at Blueapple Dental Care, Railway Road in Belcoo, or online here.

Speaking about the upcoming trip, Tanya said: “I love my job and believe the skills I have developed in my career and my willingness to take a hands-on approach will be invaluable during my trip. Nepal has suffered extreme healthcare deprivation since the 2015 earthquake and the villages we visit will benefit hugely from this charitable work.

Elaine Brownlee, Practice Manager at Blueapple Dental Care, added: “Tanya’s a fantastic member of the team, who always provides valuable clinical advice for her patients. Likewise, she’s great at helping people who might be nervous about visiting the dentist – which will be a great asset for this trip. While we’ll miss her at the practice, this is a fantastic opportunity for Tanya to help those in need and we’re all hugely proud of her ambitious plans to raise essential funds whilst marking this fantastic career milestone.”
