Care Mobile offers dental care for Incline Village kids
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — A mobile dental van will be in Incline Village for a couple of days this month offering affordable care to local kids.
The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile will be in Incline from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, June 14-15, at the Hyatt Regency.
The RMCM is operated in partnership between Nevada Health Centers and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas. RMCM offers oral healthcare to children up through age 21.
“Our staff focuses on treatment, education, prevention, and advocacy to children,” said a press release. “The Care Mobile offers the same services provided in a brick and mortar facility and is staffed with a dentist, dental assistants and office assistants. Because it is on wheels, we are able to bring access to affordable care to communities throughout Nevada.”
The Nevada Health Centers, Inc. RMCM program provides dental care by licensed dental professionals on a mobile dental van. Periodically the dental work will be done by dental students or dental hygiene students who are under the direct supervision of a licensed dentist.
Upon written request by the patient, dental x-rays or dental records will be sent to another dental provider or will be released to the patient.
Patients must give 24 hours notice of cancellation. Patients canceling or failing to keep two or more appointments are not considered dependable and may be refused appointments in the future. Refunds cannot be given for service rendered.
Call 800-787-2568 to schedule an appointment.
