Will County’s 40-foot mobile dental van features digital x-ray capabilities and two fully-equipped dental chairs. It will enable Will County Community Health Center dental professionals to offer services to clients at schools and community shelters who might not otherwise have access to preventive and restorative dental services.

All children are eligible to be treated on the van for exams, x-rays, cleanings, fluoride treatment, sealants, fillings, simple extractions. 

All adults are eligible for free Oral Cancer Screening. Visits for adults at local shelters are grant funded to include cleanings and exams, fillings and simple extractions. Adults that do not reside at shelters may receive treatment on the mobile at a discounted rate if they provide proof of income.

If anyone would like to schedule the Mobile Dental Unit at their facility/health fair/event please call 815-546-4090. The mobile unit stays within Will County but visits neighboring counties by agreement. 

  "The mobile dental van was excellent!  Erica and Linda were so nice and wonderful with the children.  Such a great
   experience!" - Stephanie from Educare
