Fasting during the holy month of Ramadan is considered obligatory for all Muslims. It is regarded as one of the five pillars of Islam in which all the followers observe complete abstinence from food and fluid during daylight hours. Such a strict practice has built up hesitations among the followers to go for a dental treatment. This article aims to describe the modifications in the dental practice required for Muslims during this month alongside the oral health-care tips. A dentist should consider these alternatives and appreciate the religious custom so as to provide a compassionate service.
