What We Do
The SmileMobile program is a three-chair mobile dental van that provides dental care to children, youth, pregnant and postpartum people and adults (at designated clinics) with limited access to dental care in their community.
The Dental Team
The SmileMobile staff includes a licensed dentist, registered dental assistant, clinic manager and volunteer dental professionals in the communities we travel to. In some areas, the staff will also include a licensed dental hygienist.
Services May Include
The SmileMobile staff may provide one or more of the following services: oral health education, examination, x-rays, cleaning, sealants, fluoride varnish, fillings, simple extraction and written referral for patients with comprehensive dental needs
Who Qualifies for SmileMobile Program?
Pregnant, postpartum people, babies, young children, youth and adults (designated clinics) enrolled in Apple Health (Medicaid), commercial insured or uninsured.
Is the SmileMobile in my area?
Check our SmileMobile schedule to see if we are coming to your area. If not, please check out our dental resources for a dental clinic or dentist near you. DentistLink.org is a free referral service to help you find a dentist for you or your children, including dentists who accept Apple Health or serve patients who don’t have dental insurance
Schedule a Dental Visit
To call and schedule a dental appointment when the SmileMobile is in your community, please call 1.888.286.9105. Once you have scheduled the dental appointment, you will receive an email from TouchHealth (children) and/or Dentrix Ascend (adults) to complete health history forms.
If you do not have access to an electronic device to complete your health history form before your appointment, you will fill out the form at your appointment and provide insurance (e.g. Medicaid, commercial) information.
Day of the Dental Appointment
Please arrive 10 – 15 minutes before your dental appointment. Once you arrive, you can wait in your car and text SmileMobile staff to let them know you are there or wait inside the clinic partner facility (i.e. church, school). If you need to fill out your health forms, you will do so at this time. A SmileMobile team member will escort you to the SmileMobile.
