Samaj Dental Hospital
Dental health and hygiene is one of the important health issues which is often neglected by the people. Although adequate measures are taken to diagnosis other diseases and treat them, dental health is often left alone. This is one reason why dental health problems are arising in the country with more and more people being affected by one or more dental problems, the most common being development of cavity in teeth.
Understanding the need and importance of dental health awareness among the people of Nepal, Samaj Dental Hospital was established with the objective of fulfilling this void.
