DEC, Saraf Hospital

 We have opened a facial and dental treatment center – Dentofacial Esthetics Center (DEC) at Saraf Hospital, Kochi, Kerala, exclusively for attending to the deformity problems of the face and teeth. The center will be addressing all problems affecting the appearance of the face in general - from small moles and pigmentations on the face to complex dento-facial deformities and defects. We have also made provisions to treat the poor and needy sections of the population who cannot afford the required treatment procedures, which very often include complex facial surgical procedures. The Center has been registered as a charitable trust. We have already conducted a program “Beautiful Face”, a charitable project for the socio-economically backward patients. The new project which the DEC has organized in association with the Rotary Club of Cochin Midtown is the "Gifting Smiles" project.
