Dental assistance is available for special needs patients in Saudi Arabia’s eastern region


Dammam – For more than 12 years, individuals with special needs who lacked access to treatment services have been able to receive dental care at clinics run by the Eastern Health Cluster, a healthcare institution in the Kingdom.

The provider stated: “Those with mental health issues, autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, mental retardation, and Parkinson’s disease were among those who faced barriers to accessing dental care services.

“More than 950 individuals received our services, including 547 men and 409 women. Also, in the comprehensive rehabilitation unit, residents thoroughly treated 92 patients while they were under general anaesthesia.

“In 2022, we offered our services during weekly examination visits to over 400 beneficiaries.”
