Service Facilities

Currently, the Loving Smiles Foundation Limited is operating two dental clinic facilities for those with special needs. We aim at removing the barriers of access to quality dental care for them. They are not only physically accessible but also equipped to provide conscious sedation to those who have difficulty in coping with the challenge of dental treatment. We also work in partnership with the Evangel Hospital to provide dental service under general anesthesia for those who are unable to cooperate for dental treatment or those who need better medical support during dental treatment.
