New mobile dental clinic to help uninsured kids

A mobile dental clinic that will provide services for “under-served” children in the metro area was unveiled today in St. Paul. It’s called the Ronald McDonald Care Vehicle and is sponsored by Ronald McDonald House Charities, Medical Teams International, Ecolab and local McDonald’s owners.

The 40-foot vehicle has two dental stations for hygiene and restorative work, and a reception station. It will provide exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, X-rays, fillings and extractions, along with dental education.

It will travel to schools, churches, public health and community centers in the 13-county metro area, to serve children who would otherwise receive limited or no dental care.
