The Colorado Smilemakers Mobile
Clinic is staffed by School of Dental Medicine’s faculty and students. It
provides diagnostic, preventative and restorative services to underprivileged
children in Colorado counties which are underserved.
The Colorado Smilemakers Mobile Clinic has been rolling
since 2007. In the early years we went
to Grand County, Eagle County, and Yuma County.
In the more recent years, we've been going to Yuma, Fremont, and
From 2011-2013 during school hours, we've been parked at
the Sheridan Health Services/Sheridan School Based Health Center. We go to rural areas just in the summer
months when travelling is easier. During the summer of 2013, the mobile van
spent time in Yuma, Gunnison, and Canon City.
In total, we've provided treatment to nearly 2,600
patients. 90% of those are underinsured
and uninsured children.
