Correction: This blog post has been updated to correct an error. Our Mobile Dental Van team provided 3,254 patient visits from March 2017 through mid-February 2019. The update below erroneously stated our Mobile Dental Van saw 20,334 visits through the mid December 2018. That truly would have been a breathtaking schedule! The total number of community members served at the Mobile Dental Van remains the same: as of mid-February, our team has provided care to 1,222 patients. Dental services available at the Mobile Dental Van include dental cleanings and preventative care, X-rays, and fillings.
Mountain Family Health Centers is humbled that our Mobile Dental Van has been extremely popular since opening in March 2017. We’re excited to report our Mobile Dental Van team served more than a thousand patients through December 18th, 2018. That translates to 20,334 visits where patients received a variety of dental services, including cleanings and preventative care, X-rays, and fillings.
Our Mobile Dental Van recently moved full time to our Glenwood Springs health center, at 1905 Blake Avenue, and will be located at that address through 2019. The van was previously at the El Jebel Community Center near our Basalt health center. The Mobile Dental Van is moving to our Glenwood Springs health center because dental services for Roaring Fork Valley residents and workers are now available at our new Basalt Integrated Health Center. Patients with questions about receiving dental care at the Mobile Dental Van or our new Basalt Integrated Health Center can call 970-945-2840.
To provide high quality, integrated primary medical, behavioral, and dental health care in the communities we serve, with special consideration for the medically underserved, regardless of ability to pay.
