Delta Dental Mobile Program

 

mobile-program-trucks.2304x752.jpgOur passion to help those in our community who need it most is why, every year, we team up with Delta Dental to provide dental services to youth in our area.

Delta Dental of South Dakota manages, operates, and staffs the mobile trucks. Local community agencies act as site partners to host a truck visit, and local sponsors contribute a modest stipend for the visit.

The Delta Dental Mobile Program provides oral health services to children who have not visited a dentist in at least two years, due to numerous reasons, including lack of insurance or transportation. A wide range of dental care is available, such as exams, X-rays, cleanings, preventive treatments, cavity fillings, crowns, and extractions. Kids are also provided a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and demonstration on how to better care for their teeth at home. Services are available to children who are just getting their first tooth all the way through age 21 and these services are provided at no cost to the child or family.
