Gaza dentist forced to treat patients in tent after clinic in Israel destroyed

Dental Care in the Face of Adversity: Palestinian Dentist Najdat Saqr’s Resilience and Resourcefulness

Palestinian dentist Najdat Saqr was determined to continue treating patients despite the devastating Israeli bombing that destroyed his clinic in the Gaza Strip. Despite the damage, he retrieved equipment from under the rubble and set up a tent to resume his practice. Saqr has now opened a temporary clinic in a tent in the Nuseirat refugee camp to provide care for those in need.

Saqr faced numerous challenges after the attacks, including the lack of electricity and water at his makeshift clinic. Undeterred, he salvaged equipment and materials from the damaged center and transported them to his clinic by tuk-tuk. Endodontic treatment, which makes up most of his work, remains a priority for Saqr, although he is running low on anesthesia.

Proudly displayed on the tent poles are Saqr’s vocational qualification certificates, which he managed to salvage from the rubble of his clinic. Despite the difficult circumstances, he is determined to continue providing quality care to his patients. Saqr emphasized the importance of his qualifications in maintaining the standards of his practice.

In spite of adversity, Saqr’s dedication to his profession and his patients remains unwavering. Despite facing numerous challenges such as limited resources and difficult working conditions, he continues to serve the community and provide vital dental care to those in need through resilience and resourcefulness.
