Mobile Dental Program

Providing preventative and restorative care to elementary school students since 1998.

Every Smile Tells A Story

St. David's Mobile Dental Program offers free dental care to children at Title 1 elementary schools in Central Texas, as well as adults referred by area clinics. This is the largest mobile charity dental program in the country.

From August through May, the Mobile Dental Program treats elementary school children who attend Title I and charter schools in Austin, Del Valle, Hays, Manor, Pflugerville, and Round Rock ISDs. When school is not in session, our vans partner with area social service agencies to serve adults and families.

Each of our nine dental vans is equipped with two dental exam rooms, digital x-rays, and computer workstations. Board-certified dentists, hygienists, and assistants give free high-quality care to children at their schools, so students don’t have to miss class, and parents don’t have to miss work.

Beyond addressing urgent needs, this program also educates students about dental hygiene habits that will last a lifetime.

Sometimes parents can't take off work or don't have the transportation means to take their child to the dentist. By treating students directly at the schools, we're removing that barrier between the student and getting to the dentist.
