The program’s main beneficiaries will be children and young people across three continents.

dedicated to ensuring that people have the best possible oral health and quality of life worldwide for a century. Following several years of determined work, the Ivoclar Group launched its own international aid program called Ivoclar Joy in 2022, at the behest of Christina Zeller, Supervisory Board Member responsible for CSR. The program is accompanied by a steering committee and an operational project management team. Ivoclar Joy has been established with the primary goal of providing dental care to children and young people in underserviced regions worldwide. In addition, the program aims to raise awareness about oral health in these groups to enhance their potential for a positive and successful future. After having laid the groundwork, Ivoclar is now unveiling its aid program to the public as part of its anniversary celebration.

Global commitment
The focus of Ivoclar Joy is to provide on-location dental care in the form of preventive measures, minor restorative procedures, basic fillings and surgical interventions. A leading provider of medical and technical products, the company has already set up base stations in Ghana, Cambodia and Peru, treating over 2000 patients (as of June 2023). “Going forward, the goal is to involve interested Ivoclar employees around the world in the years to come and establish our aid program in additional locations,” says Christina Zeller.

Portable dental units
Three portable dental units allow the local teams of professionals to deliver dental procedures in all three of the above countries, including remote regions. The portable units, which have demonstrated their effectiveness in international aid projects, are regularly supplied with instruments and materials from Ivoclar. The program encompasses additional activities such as advancing the skills of local dental professionals and delivering oral healthcare education at schools, fully covering all related expenses.
