Colel Chabad fills the gaps for Israel's poor.
Subsidized Dental Clinics
While Israel is justifiably famous for its socialized medicine — among the best coverage in the world — dental care is not included for all. While young children are now getting free basic dental care, the vast majority of Israelis are on their own.
This has been a problem for the poor who must give priority to food and rent, putting preventive and remedial dental care out of reach.
The deeply subsidized prices make oral hygiene affordable for thousands of adults who would otherwise have no recourse.
