​​「盈愛‧笑容服務」


食物及衞生局認同成年智障人士的牙科護理需要特別的服務安排,並於2013年8月起透過為期四年智障人士的牙科服務先導計劃(「盈愛·笑容服務」)探索可行及有效的運作模式。本來在食物及衞生局預先知悉下,「盈愛·笑容服務」已於2017年2月20日起停止接受新症。現在我們很高興宣布食物及衞生局再注入額外資金以處理已於2017年2月20日前在「盈愛·笑容服務」輪候冊上登記了的智障人士的服務需要,預料所有的治療仍需一年多才全部完成。


「盈愛﹒笑容服務」乃是由食物及衛生局資助,並由香港牙醫學會及香港無障牙科學會舉辦,並由香港牙醫學會、盈愛·笑容基金有限公司及播道醫院共同合作營辦的智障人士牙科服務計劃,服務對象為18歲或以上智障(輕度、中度及嚴重)成人,同時領取社會署的 A)個人或家庭綜援或 B)傷殘津貼,或 C)醫院管理局發出的醫療費用豁免。目的是一站式提供及資助他們的口腔衛生及牙科治療服務。


合資格的人士需經社福機構康復服務單位(例如智障人士院舍及展能中心)轉介至參與計劃的牙科診所接受初步口腔檢查。診所內有輔助起重機﹐可幫助行動不便或乘坐輪椅之人士接受牙科治療。診所將按個別情況安排他們在診所使用行為處理的方法或到醫療支援完備的醫院在靜脈鎮靜或全身麻醉下接受所需的牙科服務。所有的治療完成後,照顧者會獲得口腔健康教育及口腔衛生指導,以便幫助病人保持口腔健康。目前,提供「盈愛‧笑容服務」的只有盈愛無障牙科中心。


欲參加盈愛.笑容服務﹐而又合資格之人士(指所有18歲或以上的智障成人)在首次應診時,須攜同 1) 香港身份證,2) 智障證明, 3) 綜援 或 傷殘津貼證明交給盈愛無障牙科中心以作核實。(如家人或監護人正為病人代領傷殘津貼,需填寫一份代領傷殘津貼聲明書(請按此下載)以茲證明。)


食物及衞生局提供的資助範圍包括口腔檢查及全部基本的牙科治療;若果有需要靜脈鎮靜或全身麻醉服務,亦可獲得資助。

另外,若智障人士因應診需要使用陪診服務,可以實報實銷形式申請最高每小時港幣70元的資助。欲想申請車資資助之人士﹐需填妥陪診/復康巴士/車資資助申請表格(請按此下載)﹐連同正式收據寄回香港新界葵涌祖堯邨祖 堯坊地下E13-15號舖便可。至於乘坐輪椅的人士應診則有實報實銷的出租車費資助。

Loving Smiles service  


The Food and Health Bureau fully recognizes that the patients with intellectual disability (ID) have special dentistry needs and would like to explore a feasible and effective operation model by launching a four-year “Pilot Project on Dental Service for Patients with Intellectual Disability” (also known as “Loving Smiles Service” ) starting from August 2013.  While with the prior understanding of the FHB, the Loving Smiles Service has ceased to accept new cases with effect from 20 February 2017, now we are pleased to announce that the Food and Health Bureau has injected additional fund to (Loving Smiles Service) to complete the treatment needs of the patients who have been enrolled before 20 February 2017. It is anticipated that all these treatments will take another year.  

Loving Smiles Service is a pilot dental service for the persons with intellectual disability, commissioned by the Food & Health Bureau (FHB), organized by the Hong Kong Dental Association and the Hong Kong Special Care Dentistry Association, operated by the Hong Kong Special Care Dentistry Association, the Loving Smiles Foundation Limited and the Evangel Hospital. Its service targets are the persons with intellectual disability (mild/moderate/severe) aged 18 or above, who are receiving  a) Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) or  b) Disability Allowance from the Social Welfare Department or  c) medical fees waiver issued by the Hospital Authority.


They need to be referred by their rehabilitation service units of the welfare NGOs (such as residential hostels and day activity centres for the intellectually disabled), to the participating dental clinic for initial check-up. There is a portable hoist which can help those in wheelchairs to have dental treatment. According to their individual conditions, they would then be arranged to receive other necessary dental services, through behavioral management, under intravenous (IV) sedation or general anesthesia (GA) in a hospital setting with adequate medical support. When treatment is completed, oral health education and oral hygiene instruction would be given to the caregivers to help maintain the oral health of the patient. At the moment, there is only the Loving Smiles Special Care Dental Centre providing the Loving Smiles Service.


The eligible participants (refer to those persons on or above 18 years old with intellectual disability) should bring the following documents when they take the first visit: 1) Hong Kong Identity Card, 2) Proof of intellectual disability, 3) Proof of obtaining Comprehensive Social Security Assistance, 4) Proof of obtaining Disability Allowance. (If parents or guardians collect the Disability Allowance on behalf of the patients, please fill in the declaration form (click here to download) as the proof.) 


The coverage of the FHB sponsorship includes a dental check-up and all the basic dental treatment needed. Should the person with ID require IV sedation or GA service for dental treatment, this would be included in the sponsorship. Additionally, if the patient requires escort service for treatment visits, the escort fees could be reimbursed at a highest hourly rate of HK$70. Those who want to apply the reimbursement of escort fee, should fill in the escort fee reimbursement form (click here to download) and send to Shops E13-15, G/F, Cho Yiu Centre, Cho Yiu Chuen, Kwai Chung, N.T., Hong Kong with the official receipts of the fees incurred. Those who are wheel-chair bound will also have the hired transport service reimbursed for their treatment visits.
