Basic dental treatment is often neglected and placed last on the list of priorities by many needy families, due to the many other crucial expenses that they must tend to first. This neglect eventually damages primarily the health of the children. In order to assist these families, Yad Ezrah established and operates two dental clinics. The clinics, staffed by highly-skilled professionals, offer a variety of dental services which would otherwise be unavailable for this segment of the Israeli population. More than 20,000 patients are treated at the dental clinics each year at a significant cost reduction, enabling them to promote their own health care, albeit their financial distress.
