Our dental unit is sponsored and run by Rotary Doctors Bank from Sweden. It is housed within the outpatient area and offers a full range of quality preventive and curative dental care to children and adults. The visiting dentists serve for a period of six weeks on rotational basis. Services for primary school children are offered free of charge, while a very reasonable and affordable charge is asked of the other patients. .
The dental unit is equipped with a modern dental unit, tools and materials needed. The focus on hygiene is of great essence.
