Uniting Copts in dentistry worldwide & raising money for mobile dental clinics in Upper Egypt
Who are we?
This society was initially started in the UK during the 2020 national lockdown as a means to create a group for sharing educational resources and help each other through exams, dental school, and beyond! We are proud to say that since then we have grown and decided to take on our first charity project in Egypt, our home country, called "Mobile Smiles".
What does "Coptic" mean?
Coptic just means Egyptian. It was the old language spoken in Egypt in the 16th century but is still used in our churches today. We are proud of our heritage, but just because we have that in our name does not mean we will not welcome anyone of any country or belief.
The Charity Project: Mobile Smiles
We have currently raised half of our goal of £50,000 for the first mobile dental clinic. Read more on our blog post below, by our very own Mariam Ghobrial, to find out more about why the people in these rural areas need this mission and how it will change many lives.
