Med Imaging Healthcare proudly sponsored The Mad Molars – a team taking part in the 2015 Monte Carlo or Bust Banger Rally from St. Qentin to Monaco to raise money for Glasgow Dental School.
The Dental Appeal aims to raise £300,000 over the next three years to allow this major project to proceed. A variety of fund-raising events were planned, in conjunction with the Glasgow Dental Alumnus Association. One of these was to enter a car in the 2015 Monte Carlo or Bust Banger Rally.
The rally was a huge success and they are now close to a total of £12,000.
About The Dental Appeal
In the 135 years since its establishment, the Dental School has evolved progressively in response to both professional and educational advances. A radically revised BDS curriculum was rolled out between 2004 and 2009. This curriculum has been highly acclaimed, achieving 100% overall student satisfaction in the four consecutive National Student Surveys of 2011 – 2014.
The Dental Hospital & School building in Sauchiehall Street has been undergoing an extended period of upgrading in recent years. NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde has invested heavily in infrastructure and clinical facilities whilst the University has concentrated on investments to upgrade teaching facilities.
There is one remaining Dental School teaching facility which is not fit for purpose and which is the subject of our current fund-raising. This is the Prosthodontics Teaching Laboratory, an area in which students spend a significant amount of time learning about the technical aspects of constructing dental prostheses, both fixed and removable. Replacement of this laboratory with a state-of-the-art Dental Technology Teaching Suite is the basis of the ongoing Dental Appeal.
