Smilemobile is coming to Goldendale

The Washington Dental Service Foundation SmileMobile, which travels the state offering dental services to children who might not otherwise have access to dental care, will soon be in Goldendale. The SmileMobile, a brightly painted 38-foot dental clinic on wheels, is hard to miss when it rolls into town.

Children birth through high school with limited access to dental care can be scheduled by calling Washington Dental Service Foundation at (888) 286-9105.

The SmileMobile is staffed by a clinic manager, dentist and dental assistant, and local volunteer dental professionals in each community it visits. It will be parked at Goldendale Primary School, 820 S. Schuster Ave. The SmileMobile will provide examinations on Tuesday, April 21, from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1p.m. to 4 p.m .; Wednesday, April 22, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m .; and Thursday, April 23, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Follow up treatment will be provided through Friday, May 1.

Medicaid (Apple Health) and sliding scale fee is accepted as reimbursement for services.

The SmileMobile is operated by Washington Dental Service Foundation, a non profit organization created and partially funded by Delta Dental of Washington in partnership with Seattle Children's Hospital.

The SmileMobile, which travels the state year-round providing services ranging from exams and preventive care to fillings and minor oral surgery, has examined and treated more than 30,000 youngsters in communities throughout Washington State.
