Northeast Missouri Health Council’s Mobile Dental Unit is currently at the Scotland Co. Schools to provide dental care for students.
NMHC's Mobile Dental Unit is a dental office on wheels, and its sole purpose is to provide dental care on the road. During the fall and spring semesters, the MDU visits schools and provides full dental services to students whose parents opt-in.
Dr. Deana Ball and her team from Kahoka Dental kicked off the spring semester this time around. Once they have completed services at Scotland, the MDU will continue along its route and spend a few days at various school to see students who are registered.
To find out if you’re school is involved in these programs, contact your school nurse and see what requirements your student must meet to receive a visit on the Mobile Dental Unit.
