The mission of the Mobile Dental Program is to provide free or low-cost dental care to low-income children and adults, the homeless and migrant workers who lack insurance or a realistic way to pay for treatment.

Frequently asked questions
My tooth hurts, can I get an appointment on the Mobile Dental van?
Our Mobile Dental program provides dental services through over 300 community partners in Oregon and Washington. Medical Teams International does not schedule appointments from our offices as that is the responsibility of our community partners. For more information, please call our Oregon Mobile Dental hotline at 503.624.1026 or our Washington Mobile Dental hotline at 425.284.1950.
Our program provides urgent care dental services to low-income patients who lack dental insurance or any realistic way to pay for the care they need. We typically do not provide dentures, bridges, root canals, cleanings or other specialty services.
Where's the dental van today?
We operate dental clinics throughout Oregon, Washington and Minnesota. Our vans visit many different site partner locations, but we do not publish a schedule since most dental clinics are only open to the patients already working with each site partner. We do not schedule appointments from our offices. For more information, please call our Oregon Mobile Dental hotline at 503.624.1026 or our Washington Mobile Dental hotline at 425.284.1950.
