Lumino The Dentists – Helping take care of Carers in New Zealand 

KidsCan-logo-web.jpg

Lumino The Dentists are proud to support Carers NZ, the organisation supporting individuals who give their time to assist a family member or friend who has extra needs due to illness, old age or disabilities. 

The national body supports these individuals by providing information, advice, learning and support around the country.

More than 420,000 people in New Zealand are reported to be looking after a family member who is sick or has a disability. For many, this has meant a major loss of income and up to 30 hours of additional unpaid care work every week. Recently Carers NZ launched its campaign for 2018, She Cares, to recognise and celebrate women in family caring roles. Two-thirds of NZ's family carers are women.


‚ÄčLumino Day supports Carers NZ for a third year 

Lumino Day is now in its sixth year. In 2019, we supported Carers NZ once more, providing a day of free dental care up and down the country for hundreds of patients. 

On Saturday May 11 2019, Lumino The Dentists provided free dental care for hundreds of patients up and down New Zealand. 

Over 450 patients received free treatment to the value of just over $150,000 at Lumino Day 2019.  Since its inception in 2013, our annual ‘give back’ day has now given free dental treatment to the value of over $1 million to thousands of patients.

This year, a team of around 100 clinical staff from 40 practices and over 150 support staff, were on hand to treat or assist the unpaid carers and St John staff.
