Delta Dental’s mobile dental truck is returning to the area with planned visits in Madison and Flandreau. The Delta Dental Mobile Program provides care to children who cannot afford or access a dentist because of cost, lack of insurance, transportation or other reasons.
The truck will be in Madison on July 12th through the 16th, and in Flandreau on August 9th through the 13th.
A full range of dental care is available, including exams, cleanings, preventive treatments and cavity fillings. Oral health education is also provided to patients so they can continue to care for their teeth after the visit.
Children up to age 21 are eligible and services are provided at no cost to the child or family, and insurance is not necessary.
The program is a partnership between regional non-profits Interlakes Community Action Partnership, Interlakes Area United Way, and Delta Dental of South Dakota.
Registration in advance is needed, and a patient consent and information form must be completed. Appointments can be made with Mendy Herke at ICAP at (605) 256-6518 Ext. 121.
