The SmileMobile will visit College Place June 7-10 at the College Place School District Office, 1755 S. College Ave.

The service is for people without insurance and those with Apple Health (Medicaid) coverage, said Jessalyn Waring Bruce, SNAP-Ed coordinator with the Walla Walla County Department of Community Health.

The dental team will see patients from babies through high school – ages 21 and under – pregnant and postpartum women and adult family members.

Appointments must be scheduled in advance by calling 888-286-9105. Walk-in visits are not encouraged.

SmileMobile services include oral health education, limited exams and fluoride varnish. They may also perform one or more of the following: X-rays, sealants, SDF application, ITR, simple extractions and others, Bruce said.

Patients who need services in addition to what SmileMobile offers will be referred to Family Medical Center, SonBridge or other Tri-Cities providers who accept Medicaid coverage.
