Volunteering

As a young organisation we are looking to expand and grow in different areas of the UK and the rest of the world.

Whether you think you could take Gold For Kids to your area, or you are looking for a way to contribute to the project, please get in touch. We are looking for volunteers!

Maybe you have some time to distribute Welcome Packs, or talk to dentists in your area, or maybe even send our introduction flyer to your contacts. No matter how much time you have, get in touch!

For Dentists

Through Gold for Kids you will be able to:

  • Contribute to the development of the lives of children in your community.
  • Be involved in a philanthropic activity and make a difference, through your practice.
  • Provide an opportunity for your patients to donate the crown they once spent money on, after it has been removed.

There are more than 4.5 million children living in poverty in the UK. Every donated crown, bridge or piece of discarded jewellery will make a difference.

Join us today and start collecting gold for kids!

Simply complete this form and we will send you the information you need for your patients. Collect the crowns, register each patient’s donation and we will take care of the rest.

We can also place you on our registered list of ethical golden dentists and provide you with a solidarity certificate for your practice.

Our dental community has the opportunity to create a project that could make a major difference. You and your team will want to be part of it!

For Patients

Do you have an old piece of unwanted jewellery or old precious metal dental filling or crowned tooth?

Even though dental crowns and bridges look like white teeth made of porcelain, they usually have a frame work right below the porcelain, made of a combination of nobel metals, containing a percentage of yellow gold, silver, palladium and platinum. Other metals frequently used in dentistry are titanium, chromium, zinc, nickel, aluminium, iron, tin or copper.

We can make sure every penny of its value goes to a good cause. Simply request a ‘Welcome Pack’.

  • We’ll send you a pre-paid envelope.
  • Simply place your donation into the envelope and we will take care of the rest.
  • We can also send you a gift aid donation receipt and update you on the good causes your money is going to help through our newsletter.

Underprivileged children are present in many of our communities around London and other parts of the UK. When we realised that patient crowns were being sold to scrap companies that would collect these in exchange for cash, we thought…

“Why not maximise the value of these crowns rather than only receiving a % of their value and why keep the profit when this crown belonged to a patient?”

Speaking to our patients at the clinic, we realised that the vast majority would be delighted to contribute to our community by donating the costs of a crown in a tooth, when this has had to be removed. One crown won’t make a difference to anyone’s pocket, but a disruption of this scrap crown metal market could transform some of these children’s lives.
