Mobile Dental Clinic

Mobile Dental Clinic

Local and Out of Area Opportunity

The Mobile Dental Clinic targets enrollees in the UCare Health Care Program. The MDC travels into the community to serve a population that is underserved due to multiple access issues. The mission of the MDC is to provide preventive and primary dental care services to pediatric and adult populations. In addition to enhancing clinical skills, the MDC rotation includes the opportunity for dental students: to become familiar with the management aspects of a 3-chair dental clinic; to develop an awareness of patients who have been underserved by dental care; and to identify the nature of dental needs in various communities of the Twin Cities and in greater Minnesota. Students are also able to use an electronic dental record and digital radiography. The MDC departs daily from the School of Dentistry to visit local sites, while out of area destinations are week-long trips.
