Full story
An additional 300 needy elderly people are treated every year as part of the program, operated by the Oral Health Association with the help of JDC-ESHEL - The Association for the Planning and Development of Services for the Aged in Israel.

 

The treatments are performed by specialists with the help of ambulances equipped with the required medical tools. The service allows elderly and disabled people to receive high-quality dental treatments for low prices subsidized by the Health Ministry.

 

The ambulance arrives at patient's home, as well as at retirement homes and hospitals, with portable equipment which can be taken into the house. The equipment is innovative and sterilized and suitable for home treatments.

 

The program currently operates four accessorized dental care ambulances which travel all across the country.

 

Elderly people interested in the service are welcome to call 1-700-50-24-24.
