Himalayan Dental programme
Presented by Dr. John & Helen Niven
Himalayan Dental is a small volunteer organisation which serves the remote villages of Junbesi (Solukhumbu, Everest region) and Ghandruk (Annapurna region) and their surrounding valleys in Himalayan Nepal.
Dr John and Helen Niven established these clinics in 2012 to provide dental care and education to people who have no access to dental treatment. Both clinics are in health centres developed by the villagers with a small amount of government support. They have equipped the clinics as “packaway” clinics with simple portable equipment which can also be transported to other venues if necessary.
John Niven has over 40 years’ experience and is now semi-retired. He qualified in London, then moved to Australia in 1973. He has been a principal dentist in 2 large practices, Melbourne until 1996 and the Northern Rivers until 2010.
