Abstract: The religious ritual Hajj or Pilgrimage is one of the five pillars of Islam. A significant improvement has been made in the facilities provided for the pilgrims. Providing further, sufficient facilities for an ever increasing number of pilgrims from all over the world will require thorough planning and large sums of money. The aim of this study was to obtain and analyze data pertaining to dental services offered to the pilgrims during the 3-day Hajj period of 1987. A questionnaire was designed to include the majority of dental emergencies with added information pertaining to certain medical and personal data. A total of 1079 patients who attended different satellite clinics for dental emergencies were included in the study.
