Dental gold, old gold, gold from broken jewelry
The special way to donate
Donating dental gold is a rather unusual way to make a donation. It does, however, make a difference. We have been working together with dentists and their patients who support the German Doctors for many years. This has helped improve the health of many individuals in the impoverished areas where we work in India, Kenya, Bangladesh, Sierra Leone and on the Philippines.
You would like to donate dental gold:
- Send us your dental gold or old gold or gold from broken jewelry! We will send you free envelopes for your gold donation
- After we receive your donation, we will confirm receipt if you have included your name and address. Please understand that we cannot send donation receipts for each individual donation due to the high administrative time and effort involved
- We will inform you about the total donations reached via dental gold for the year of your dental donation
Your dental surgery would like to support the German Doctors:
- Contact us! We would be pleased to send you a poster explaining how to donate dental gold.
- We will send you free envelopes to give patients who want to donate their gold fillings. This makes it easy for your surgery since you needn’t collect and insure the gold yourselves.
The envelopes will be documented by two individuals and stored in a locked container. Before the envelopes are picked up by the ‘Precious Metal Separating Works’, the documentation and the contents will again be compared.
The leading Precious Metal Separating Works in Germany, HERAEUS Kulzer GmbH, regularly picks up the posted gold donations at our headquarters in Bonn. HERAEUS then melts, analyses, and separates the gold and receives confirmation of their charitable work from us. HERAEUS then transfers the earnings, which are determined according to the highest current market price, to the German Doctors.
