Who are We
The Foundation is the brain-child of Gabriella Schmidt-Corsitto from Switzerland, a qualified dental hygienist, and Dr Anuudari Erkhembaatar, a Mongolian dental practitioner who teaches at the University of Dentistry in Ulaanbaatar and has been a dentist with her own practice since 2015.
Dr Anuudari is General Director of Pro Dent Dental Clinic in Ulaanbaatar and Associate Professor at the Mongolian National University of Medical Sciences School of Dentistry. She holds a PhD in oral pathology from Aichi Gakuin University, Nagoya, Japan and a DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) from the High Institute of Medical Sciences Faculty of Dentistry, Havana, Cuba. She practiced paediatric dentistry and conducted research at the Maternal Child Health Research Centre of Mongolia. Dr Anuudari’s research has been published in Mongolia, Japan and Cuba. She speaks Mongolian, English, Russian and Japanese.
Gabriella Schmidt-Corsitto brings her long experience of working in Africa to the MKF, where she set up a mobile dental clinic for the Albert Schweizer Hospital and has served hundreds of disadvantaged children in remote regions of West Africa.
