SmileMobile outside local clinic to provide dental care access to Medicaid children

SmileMobile

Providing care to children and pregnant people 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 people throughout Washington who have no insurance or have Apple Health (Medicaid).

The SmileMobile is a partnership of Delta Dental of Washington, Arcora Foundation, and Seattle Children’s Hospital. Services include:

  • Oral health education
  • Examinations
  • X-rays
  • 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.

To learn more or become a volunteer on the SmileMobile, contact Karri Amundson, at 206.276.1620.
