The new offer at the hospital, the consultation hours of a dentist, are well accepted. Especially for the poorer rural population, dental care has hardly been available so far because it is unaffordable. In 2019, a room was therefore provided in the hospital in which a dental chair found its home. A dentist from the surrounding area agreed to hold consultation hours there on a fee basis. Carious teeth are now being restored and tooth remains that cannot be saved are being removed. Not least as prevention of a heart valve inflammation no unimportant thing.
