The Med­ical Teams Inter­na­tion­al Mobile Den­tal Van is return­ing in 2022 thanks to a pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ship mak­ing den­tal access to care avail­able across the islands. 

2022 Den­tal Clin­ic Dates:

The van offers full den­tal care with X‑rays, oral health exams, fill­ings, extrac­tions, and teeth cleaning/ hygiene ser­vices. If you are inter­est­ed in sched­ul­ing an appoint­ment, please fill out an appli­ca­tion online in Eng­lish or Span­ish, vis­it our web­site www.sanjuanco.com/1839/Dental-Van-Oral-Health-Programs, or con­tact the Health Depart­ment or your local Resource Center.
