The SmileMobile program provides oral health services to underserved children, youth, pregnant/postpartum people and adult family members (at designated clinics) at no cost to clinic partners. The program includes a 39-foot, 3 chair dental van (SmileMobile) that serves as a mobile clinic to provide diagnostic, preventive, restorative and emergent care across the state in areas with limited or no access to dental care.
Arcora Foundation manages, operates and staffs the mobile van, and works with local community clinic partners to identify target groups most in need of care who can least afford and access it. The program accepts Apple Health (Medicaid), commercial insurance and those without dental insurance.
Since 1995, the SmileMobile has visited over 100 communities and provided dental care to more than 44,000 patients. The SmileMobile operates on average of 44 weeks per year and provides dental care to approximately 1,600 – 2,000 patients annually.
The SmileMobile program is a partnership with Arcora Foundation, its parent company Delta Dental of Washington, Seattle Children’s and local organizations in the communities that host the SmileMobile.
