Oral Health in Lisbon
Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa (SCML) provides the first pediatric dental service in the capital, reinforcing its complementary role to the National Health Service. The purpose is to help improve the levels of oral health in the community where it operates, working with young people to give them a better oral health.
With the dedication of a team of excellence, modern equipment and advanced technology, which allows us to provide a comprehensive and differentiated set of services in all medical-dental specialties to children and young people.
Because oral diseases can have a significant impact on people’s quality of life when functions as basic as chewing, speaking and smiling are compromised, there is no doubt that oral health has a relevant role in the population’s quality of life.
With SOL – Oral Health in Lisbon, Santa Casa is making a decisive contribution to differentiating and improving the quality of oral health care provided to citizens.
