Genova. There is no doubt: toothache is one of the most unbearable pains that a human being can experience. When it arrives at weekends it is even worse, because usually most of the population has a reference dentist who works in a private practice closed to the public on Saturdays and holidays.
This is why the initiative promoted by the Genoa Local Health Authority 3 is particularly useful as part of the plan to strengthen emergency / emergency resources in view of the influenza peak so as not to obstruct first aid: a dental emergency service active since 22 December 2018 to 22 March 2019: the toothache clinic.
“A new innovative service – explains the general director of ASL 3 Luigi Carlo Bottaro – that we can guarantee thanks to a collaboration with the Order of Doctors and Dentists. A clinic open on Saturdays, Sundays, public holidays, even at Christmas, with the exclusion of only the first of January ».
The clinic is open from 8 to 12 at the Palazzo della Salute and can be accessed by those who have a health card and have an acute and painful situation. «Patients will be assisted in real time, the performances follow the general rules of the ticket».
