However, dental trauma is the second charter of the Department. With Rambam Health Care Campus serving as the only tertiary referral hospital in Northern Israel, many trauma victims (civilians and military) are treated here. Approximately 9% of all trauma victims have injuries to the face, jaws, or teeth. Successful treatment of such dental injuries is time dependent. Thus, the Department collaborates with colleagues in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department to deliver optimal and timely treatment to these patients.
The Department is headed by Dr. Shaul Lin, with Prof. Arie Kaufman in charge of the postgraduate program.
