"Miles of Smiles" Dental Care for Local School Children

JUNE 20, 2006 -- The New Hanover County Health Department is giving families something to smile about.

There's a new dentist's office on the road, and it's coming to your child's school.

The Mobile Dental Clinic has begun visiting elementary schools in New Hanover and Brunswick County.

Children whose families have no insurance or have trouble getting to the dentist's office can receive dental care for free.

The Dentist's Office on wheels will serve school children ages three to 18.

It will begin scheduling visits to the elementary schools in our area.
