LONG BEACH — The Washington Dental Service Foundation SmileMobile is in Long Beach through this Friday, Oct. 30.
The SmileMobile travels the state offering dental services to children who might not otherwise have access to dental care. The SmileMobile, a brightly painted 38-foot dental clinic on wheels, is hard to miss when it rolls into town.
Children birth through high school with limited access to dental care can be scheduled by calling Washington Dental Service Foundation at 1-888-286-9105.
The SmileMobile is staffed by a clinic manager, dentist and dental assistant. It is parked at Long Beach Head Start, 2611 Pacific Ave. North. The SmileMobile will provide treatment appointments for the rest of the week, after doing examinations Monday and Tuesday.
Medicaid (Apple Health) and sliding scale fees are accepted as reimbursement for services.
The SmileMobile is operated by Washington Dental Service Foundation, a non-profit organization created and partially funded by Delta Dental of Washington in partnership with Seattle Children’s Hospital.
