Tip of the Month

One the most important aspects of maintaining dental hygiene is diet. Sugary foods linger in the mouth, feeding bacteria and causing them to multiply. Did you know that starch-based foods such as bread and pasta also contain sugar? Keeping your mouth clean by eating at regular meal-times and rinsing your mouth out with water after eating can keep your teeth healthy and white – and preserve your smile for years to come.

Message from Luba Slome's President


Dear Friend,

        More than 28 years ago, when visiting Israel and seeing first hand the dental problems of the disadvantaged populations, I first had the idea of establishing a non-profit dental center. I didn't dream of anything on the scale of Luba Slome today. At first there were two dental chairs and a small residency program. Over the years, Luba Slome has grown to become one of the largest non-profit dental centers in Israel -  we've treated a sizeable portion of Jerusalem's population at one time or another! I think that fact speaks volumes about the great dentists and special atmosphere at the clinic. Even more significantly, our educational programs have helped countless families help themselves for a lifetime.

       I believe there is no greater gift than health. When Luba Slome's dedicated dentists and staff provide children with the well-being and confidence that comes from good oral health, we give them more than a nice smile. We give them the ability to enjoy life confidently and fully. That to me is worth all our efforts.

       Luba Slome's success story is thanks in large part to the generous support of its friends and supporters in Israel, the US, and around the world. There are still many more underprivileged children in Jerusalem and around Israel that need our help. When a family receives oral health education, it directly affects their life for the better - and the knowledge is passed on to the next generation. I am convinced we are on our way to bringing about real improvement in the Israeli public's dental health.

       With your generous support, Luba Slome can expand its oral health educational programs and reach more of those who need a guiding hand.

        In 28 years we've seen remarkable improvement. With your help, the next 28 years will put a stop to the plague of dental disease affecting Israel's underprivileged populations. All children deserve to have healthy mouths. All children deserve an equal chance to succeed and prosper in life.
    
Please join us and help make a difference.

With heartfelt thanks,

          Dr. Isaac V. Perle,
          Founder and President
          The Luba Slome Dental Center
