Exciting new developments - we are in the process of setting up an opportunity for any adrenaline-junkie dental students to abseil down the Arcelormittal Orbit which is the UK's highest freewill abseil on the UK's tallest sculpture! It's an awesome way to see London, at 262 feet above the city.
If any student would be interested in doing this, we need a £50 deposit to confirm your spot, and then a minimum fundraise of £200.
So that's the update for now - watch this space as nothing is confirmed just yet but could be very soon. If you're interested - please get in touch with Aniqah to find out more.

Really excited to be able to now confirm that Oral-B are kindly supporting our Charity Ball by donating one Genius 9000 toothbrush that we can add to the auction list.
All money raised by auctioning their top of the range toothbrush will go towards Dentaid.
Thanks for the support!

I am so excited to be able to write this update. We have now confirmed that there will be a skydiving opportunity for any interested/crazy/brave Barts and The London dental students to jump out of a plane at 10,000/15,000ft!!!
We have arranged the skydive for June 9th 2018, so it is still a while away, but nonetheless, it will be happening soon. From January 2018, we will begin to promote this opportunity properly within the dental institute, and the aim is to have a confirmed list of 20 students who are definitely going to do the sky dive by February 2018.
Then, those 20 students will each need to raise £300 for Dentaid. What an amazing way to raise money and profile for our supported charity, by getting a huge adrenaline rush and hopefully having a lot of fun in the process.
I am personally 100% up for it, and have already told my mum. She wasn't happy to hear it, and tried to convince me not to do it for about 3 hours, but I've told her now and that was the hardest thing I needed to do.
If you are a Barts and The London dental student reading this, and are also interested then please get in touch with myself (Ali Nasser), or Aniqah to find out more.
Eeeeek! So exciting :D
