Dental Trey - Dental Trey supports Emergency ‘Politruck’ in Milan

 

Dental Trey, the Italian distributor of dental consumable merchandise offering more than 40,000 dental products, supports the Emergency Politruck in Milan, donating essential healthcare products for oral health to the organisation’s mobile clinics.

Emergency is an Italian NGO founded in 1994 to provide the highest standards of free medical and surgical care to victims of war, landmines and poverty. The organisation works towards fostering a culture of peace, solidarity and respect for human rights. Emergency's humanitarian aid is made possible thanks to the contribution of thousands of volunteers and advocates. Since its creation, Emergency has provided healthcare to more than 8 million people.

To ensure medical treatment is given in a timely manner to those in need, Emergency has set up five mobile clinics: two ‘Polibuses’, two street units and a ‘Politruck’. The mobile clinics provide services for definitive periods of time in disadvantaged and remote areas, such as agricultural areas, traveller or refugee camps. The services provided at the mobile clinics are free. From April 2011 to December 2016, Emergency has carried out over 54,000 visits to mobile clinics.  

The Politruck began activities in Milan in August 2015, where it offers basic healthcare and services related to social health to all people in need. The mobile clinic works in collaboration with the City of Milan and the city’s ASL (local health authority). The Politruck works in various city areas from Monday to Friday, from 10.30 to 18.30. Emergency staff provide free basic healthcare, mediation services and health guidance in the mobile clinic, giving people access to secondary care through services in the territory and creating pathways into the national healthcare system for those who are currently excluded.*

Dental Try has also supported Emergency’s polyclinic in Marghera in spring 2017.

Since 2015, Dental Trey is part of Henry Schein, Inc., the world’s largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, animal health and medical practitioners. The donation is an initiative of Henry Schein Cares, the company’s global corporate social responsibility programme. Health care activities supported by Henry Schein Cares focus on three main areas: advancing wellness, building capacity in the delivery of health care services, and assisting in emergency preparedness and relief.
