The vehicle was designed and built specifically for the purpose of providing dental care, and houses two dental hygiene / treatment rooms, a lab with x-ray capabilities, and reception and records area. A variety of services are offered through the program, including restorative and preventive dental care; dental hygiene and healthy lifestyle education; referrals and follow-up treatment. The program also helps eligible families obtain government-assisted insurance.
