  • What does it cost for my child to participate in the Mobile Dental Program?
    If your child has Missouri care, United Healthcare Community Plan, Home State Health Plan, or Medicaid there is no cost or financial requirement to the parent or guardian. If a child is uninsured, NMHC staff will work with the parent/guardian to verify and/or apply for needed coverage.
  • Does a parent/guardian need to be present when my child is seen on the truck?
    It is not required for a parent /guardian to be present. NMHC arranges for all exams to be completed during school hours to alleviate common scheduling barriers associated with traditional doctor visits.
  • For additional questions, whom should I contact?
    Please contact our Outreach Coordinator, Shelby Johnson, by email or phone. 660-665-2741
