In addition to the sub-specialty clinics, the Department of Oral Medicine also has a number of clinics which handle mainstream first aid cases.
First Aid, Treatment Planning
The Department of Oral Medicine's First Aid Service operates daily and provides emergency treatment for patients with acute dental, periodontal, mucosal or other problems. The department also examines primary treatment plans for all adult patients that are accepted for treatment in the faculty.
Dental Treatment for the Medically Compromised Patient (MCP)
Patients with systemic disease need a specialized approach to ensure safe dental care. This categorization includes patients with relatively stable disorders such as treated high blood pressure, stable diabetes and ischemic heart disease. For patients with more severe disorders, such as unstable angina pectoris, with prosthetic heart valves or post cancer treatment, it is especially important that they receive specialized care.
Attention Cancer Patients!
The Israeli Medical Insurance Law provides partial financial assistance for patients before, during and after oncological treatment. The funding is partial and time limited except for patients suffering from cancer in the head or neck.
