Do you know how the mobile dental unit to work
Aboard the Mobile Dental unit
Colgate’s dental portable unit vans measure 32 feet long, nearly the size of a mobile home, and feature friendly visuals to help create a fun and less intimidating dental ‘screening experience’ to kids in rural and urban communities.
With two child-sized dental chairs aboard, Colgate’s Bright Smiles, Bright Futures® screens two children at a time. The average dental screening lasts approximately two minutes. With the support of our volunteer dental professionals, children ranging from three to 12 years of age all receive free dental check-ups*, treatment referrals (if needed), and learning materials that include a tube of Colgate® kid’s toothpaste, a Colgate kid’s toothbrush and brushing instructions.
For children who are in need of treatment or who do not have a dentist, we provide referrals so they can visit a dentist in their area and take care of any issues and maintain a healthy mouth.
