Are you a dentist ready to send us your collected metals? Read on.

As dentists we know there is value in the restorations and metals we recover from patients. And traditionally, due to the relatively low value of a single restoration, that value was retained. But what if that value could be multiplied and used to benefit some of the most vulnerable children in the UK? What if we could turn a few hundred pounds into tens of thousands of pounds every year? This is why Gold For Kids was created.

Ready to help?


Request a FREE Royal Mail NEXT DAY collection to send in donations and request marketing leaflets for your business.


Parcel up your crowns, first in a sterilisation bag and then some protective packaging. Royal Mail will bring a label for your parcel.

Gold for Kids Donation Process

Crown Collection

After removing a precious crown (not deemed clinical waste) the clinician should inform the patient of its potential value*. This is the ideal moment to introduce the option of donating it to Gold for Kids.


The tooth/crown should be scrubbed, sterilised and stored in a plastic container. Once the container is nearly full, or every quarter or so, contact us to arrange a NEXT DAY FREE collection from your practice.

Donation/Solidary Certificate

On receipt of the donation, Gold for Kids will register the weight and once the Melt and Assay has been performed the precious metals will be sold at market value. The clinic will then receive a certificate detailing the value of their contribution.

Nominated Charities

Depending on the amount raised, the trustees will assess the applications and nominate one or two charities, who will receive the funds on an annual or biannual basis.

Thank you for helping Gold For Kids change children’s lives.
