UK charity to send dentists on mission to Rwanda

16 June 2012 Last updated at 09:55 BST

A British dental charity is about to start work in Rwanda, a country that has only 11 qualified dentists.

The charity Bridge2Aid developed its expertise in treating and training people in deprived rural areas of Tanzania.

Volunteer British dentists have already helped hundreds of Tanzanians overcome debilitating toothache.
