On September 25 the front steps of the Missouri State Capitol became host to a mobile dental health unit dedicated to helping veterans with their oral health.
The healthy mouth movement is an initiative launched by Aspen Dental in order to give free dental care and oral health education to people in need across the United States. In 2014 the movement served nearly 3000 patients and delivered more than $1 million in free dental care.
The “Mouth Mobile” parked in front of the capitol in Jefferson City to provide free care to anyone in need, particularly veterans. The Aspen Dental Mouth Mobile is fully-equipped dental office on wheels that goes directly into communities where care isn’t readily available to provide free services and to raise awareness of oral health.
The care provided in the Mouth Mobile can range from a simple cleaning and x-rays to a full root canal.
