Charles Drew Health Center and OneWorld Community Health Centers are partnering to operate a mobile dental clinic, “Tooth Mobile,” to increase access to quality oral healthcare for the children in Northeast and Northwest Omaha. The 30 foot dental mobile unit is a gift from Ruth and Bill Scott with additional funding from the United Way.
For a variety of reasons, oral dental care is not available to all children. To provide this care, the “Tooth Mobile” staff from both Charles Drew Health Center, Inc., and OneWorld Community Health Centers Inc., which includes dentists, a program manager, drivers and dental assistants, will travel to several elementary schools, community organizations and Head Start locations in North Omaha to deliver on-site dental services.
