Meet our Second Dental Van
Yesterday, our new Dental Van made its way to Chicago, joining a mobile clinic fleet which includes two Asthma Vans and Mobile Care’s first Dental Van launched in 2014. Through all of Mobile Care’s clinics combined, an estimated 7,000 low-income children will receive no-cost health care this year. The new “Dental Van 2” houses three full-service operatories so that children can be seen quickly without sacrificing the high standard of care which Mobile Care Chicago is known for.
Both Dental Vans will converge on Chicago-area schools and head start programs this year to provide comprehensive oral health care to over 5,000 low-income children.
The addition of Mobile Care’s second Dental Van was made possible through a challenge grant from the Daniel F. and Ada L. Rice Foundation. If you’re interested in joining the Dental Van 3 Committee, which will serve as the strategic back-bone for Mobile Care’s third Dental Van, email Matt Siemer, Director of Operations, at firstname.lastname@example.org!
