Gold Crowns for a Good Cause

The aim of the Beta Dental Project “Dental Gold for a Good Cause” is to give children and ill people the chance of a better life. Bernd Knoch, dentist in the Beta Klinik and founder of this project, collects dental gold in both his Bonn and Wesseling Dental Practices and donates the proceeds of the sales equally between:

  • “Save the Children”, an international aid organisation which takes care of children in need worldwide, not only in catastrophes but also in long term projects.
  • “Shooting Star Heart’s Desire”, a charitable association in Bonn which helps and supports ill people and those in need, especially sick children and young people in fulfilling a special heart’s desire of theirs.

Inlays, onlays and bridges may consist of gold. For the patients in the dental practice it is only a matter of a few grams of gold. For the children, however, and those in need, this donation means life and happy moments!
This is why Bernd Knoch’s team ask their patients if they are willing to donate any gold from their dental treatment to his project. The Beta Dental Practice takes care of the cleaning of the precious metals in the certified refineries of Heraeus Kulzer who support this good cause. They take over the associated costs as well as the sale and forwarding of the proceeds to both organisations.
