PORT ANGELES — Appointments can be made now for the Washington Dental Service Foundation SmileMobile, which will be in Port Angeles and Joyce later this month.
The SmileMobile, a 39-foot dental clinic on wheels, travels the state offering dental services to children who might not otherwise have access to dental care.
It will be parked at Jefferson Elementary School, 218 E. 12th St., in Port Angeles on Sept. 12-13. It will be staffed by a clinic manager, dentist and dental assistant.
Examinations will be provided to children from birth up through high school age. Treatment appointments will be provided the duration of the stay.
From Sept. 19-23, it will be in Joyce at the Crescent School, 50350 state Highway 112.
SmileMobile staff accept Apple Health and offer a sliding scale fee based on family income and size.
The Washington Dental Service Foundation is a nonprofit organization created and partially funded by Delta Dental of Washington in partnership with Seattle Children’s Hospital.
The SmileMobile, which travels the state year-round providing services ranging from exams and preventive care to fillings and minor oral surgery, has examined and treated more than 30,000 youngsters in communities throughout Washington state.
