Foreign residents in Seoul will receive expanded medical services including a more expansive range of free dental treatments, the city government said Tuesday.
The Southwest Global Center, run by the city government to help foreign residents in the capital, will stay open on weekday evenings to offer dental treatments for those who cannot afford to visit the center during the day due to work.
Currently it offers the service three times a week on Tuesday, Fridays and Sundays for foreign residents aged 10 or above who are not eligible for health insurance benefits.
The service is only available through reservation.
The center also provides medical services in the areas of internal, rehabilitation and herb medicine on a first-come-first-served basis.
