Support of a Dental Clinic in Thessaloniki
PRAKSIS is a non-governmental organisation aiming to protect socially vulnerable groups of people and directly fight against their social and economic exclusion, through the design and implementation of humanitarian and medical action programs. As part of its social work, the organisation operates, among others, two Polyclinics in Athens and Thessaloniki aiming to offer direct primary care and medication.
Since September 2014, in Thessaloniki Polyclinic there is a fully equipped Dental Clinic, where dental extractions, basic surgeries, dental treatments, fillings and medical examinations for socially vulnerable groups of citizens take place. The John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation, having contributed to the creation of the Dental Clinic in 2014, continues to support this action, by covering its operational costs.
During the period 2014-2015, the dentist performed 745 dental interventions for 589 patients in total.
