For the children in the Newell, Nisland and Vale area, there is no real reason to not have proper dental care.
That is thanks to several local organizations, the altruistic goal is to meet the needs and provide ongoing dental treatment no matter the cost.
The Dentalmobile is a mobile dental service that is on the road three hundred sixty-five days a year. It travels the state providing dental services for children who would not be able to afford to pay for such services themselves.
The goal is to help get children back into good dental care by providing the on-site care needed.
The importance of good dental care for children who live a long way from a dentist, or do not have the necessary means for getting good dental care is imperative.
The Dental Smiles group has several dentists involved with the program on a part-time basis. They also have three on-staff dental hygienists and assistants who travel with the motor home which is fitted with regular dental care facilities.
