Providing care to children and pregnant women in rural and underserved communities
Our SmileMobile, a dental office on wheels, provides dental care to children and pregnant women living in rural and underserved communities who may have difficulty finding a dentist. The goal is to reduce disparities, improve health and connect families to care.
Since first hitting the road in 1995, our three-chair mobile clinic has provided care to more than 40,000 children and pregnant women throughout Washington who have no insurance or are insured through Apple Health (Medicaid).
- Oral health education
- Preventive care (sealants, fluoride varnish)
- Fillings and simple extractions
- Referrals to local dental care
Services are provided at little or no cost. In each community, the SmileMobile partners with local organizations to help with outreach. We also participate in several special events throughout the year to provide dental care to uninsured adults.
