From toothaches to dangerous bacterial infections, problems in the mouth require timely oral care. But many people in underserved communities in Houston and rural East Texas lack access to such care, which puts their health in danger. Our Mobile Dental Van addresses this challenge by bringing the dental clinic to patients. School of Dentistry faculty and fourth-year dental students provide cleanings, fillings, extractions, and other needed procedures, all free of charge.
Thanks to the generosity of previous Giving Day supporters, we recently purchased a new vehicle with state-of-the art equipment to better serve our patients. Your gift will fund the mobile clinic’s ongoing operational costs, which will allow us to continue improving lives through this vital outreach program.
