BROOKINGS – Delta Dental’s mobile dental truck is coming to Brookings during the weeks of July 20 and July 27. The truck will be parked at the Brookings Area United Way, 619 Fifth Ave., Brookings, in the back parking lot.
Brookings Area United Way is hosting the truck to care for children who do not have access to a dentist because of cost, lack of insurance, transportation, or other reasons. Children from their first tooth through age 21 are eligible.
Registration in advance is needed, and a patient consent and information form must be completed. To make an appointment, call 211. Contact Heidi Gullickson at 692-4979 or [email protected] or call 211 for more information.
A full range of dental care is available, including exams, cleanings, preventive treatments and cavity fillings. Services are provided at no cost to the child or family. No insurance is necessary.
Oral health education is also provided to patients, so they can continue to care for their teeth after the visit.
The mobile dental truck’s visit is a partnership between Brookings Area United Way and Delta Dental Mobile Program.
The Delta Dental Mobile Program provides oral health services to underserved children. The program includes two mobile dental trucks that travel across the state. The trucks have been in 81 communities throughout South Dakota and provided more than $17 million in dental care since the program began in 2004.
