The Mobile Dental Clinic provides preventive and primary dental care to UCare members in underserved areas throughout the state. All dental services are provided by School of Dentistry staff and dental, dental hygiene and dental therapy students, who care for patients under the supervision of faculty dentists.

Dean Assael hosted the program at the McNamara Alumni Center on the East Bank campus. Speakers included School of Dentistry Outreach Director Paul Schulz, fourth-year dental students Kylee Ferris and Brock Tidstrom, who shared their experiences treating patients aboard the Mobile Dental Clinic, and UCare Chief Executive Officer Nancy Feldman.
