Our mission is to improve oral health around the globe

Pearlii was born out of the belief that dental care is essential - though many people do not have access to the dental care they need.

We want to make oral care more effective and accessible worldwide - whilst also reducing its impact on the environment.

Our Story

Woman using dental floss in her top teeth

The problems are widespread

and the solutions are complicated

Icon of woman holding her cheek in discomfort due to oral health issue

Oral diseases affect approximately
3.5 billion people1

Neglecting oral health can lead to serious health issues, affecting the quality of life of millions

Oral disease & tooth loss can lead to mental & physical health problems2

Oral diseases often result in tooth loss, which can lead to low self-esteem, anxiety and depression

Icon of Earth, with a small fraction to represent countries with full dental care in public health plans

Only 12 countries include full dental care in their public health plans3

And where dental care is provided, it is often expensive, and out of reach for many people

Each year, 30 million toothbrushes are thrown away in Australia4

And once in landfill, they can take up to 500 years or more to decompose

We know the importance of good oral health and dental care first hand, and want to make sure everyone has access to it

Pearlii was founded on the belief that by facilitating better oral hygiene practices, improving accessibility to dental care, and developing sustainable oral care products, we could make a positive difference to human health, and the environment, globally.

Our founder started Pearlii after growing up without proper oral health care

A note from our founder, Dr Kyle Turner

“I grew up in a poor Aboriginal family in country New South Wales, Australia, where access to dental services was almost non-existent.

A lot of the damage was done to my teeth during that time, from growing up with such poor oral health behaviours.

With dentistry heavily privatised, we need low-cost alternatives to routine dental check-ups, as well as accessible, timely preventive dental advice.

I use those memories as fuel to make Pearlii a success.”

We donate 50% of profits to the Pearlii Foundation

The Pearlii Foundation, set up by our founder Dr Kyle Turner, is our charitable arm, designed to carry out a variety of community dental projects around the globe. Our aim is to directly help those who don't have access to, or can't afford dental care.

To do this, we are fundraising towards our Dental Truck Project. With 50% of profits going towards this project, we will be providing essential ‘on the ground’ dental care, to make a real difference, to real people.

What is the
Dental Truck Project?

Think of it as a dentist clinic on wheels.

Our fleet of Dental Trucks will travel to remote locations, providing dental care to less privileged individuals and communities, giving dental assistance to those without access.

50% of profits will go towards purchasing new vehicles, dental materials, and operational costs.

With the support of some of Australia’s most respected impact investors, such as Roger Allen and Paul Docherty, our Dental Trucks will be staffed by our volunteer dentists.

By using Dental Trucks, we can take first-class dental care directly to those who need it. We believe this model of care is the most flexible, and most cost-effective.

“Dental trucks can help thousands of people each year - people who can’t afford or access a dentist. This type of free service is life-changing for these people in need.”
