LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Ronald McDonald Charities and Nevada Health Centers are bringing access to oral healthcare for children in underserved communities through their Ronald McDonald Mobile Care. The semi-truck that drives across Nevada is stocked with the dental equipment to mirror a typical dentist’s office.

A team of dentists and dental assistants provides routine oral exams, cleanings, extractions and preventative measures such as sealants and fluoride varnishes.

“With this, we’re really making an impact on our local communities, and especially being born and raised here in Las Vegas, it was important for me to give back to our communities,” said Dr. Alexandrea Wabara, a general dentist in the Ronald McDonald Mobile Care.

Patients ages 1 to 21 years old are eligible to receive care from the mobile unit.

A list of upcoming locations and times can be found on the website for Nevada Health Centers.
