Mountain Family Health Centers host grand opening for dental van in El Jebel

Contact: Rita Woods, Director, Division of Financial Services, 970-328-8817, rita.woods@eaglecounty.us

March 9, 2017 - Eagle County Department of Human Services and Mountain Family Health Centers invite community members to tour a new mobile dental van on March 15 in the El Jebel Community Center parking lot, located at 0020 Eagle County Drive in El Jebel.

The state of the art dental van is a collaborative effort between multiple organizations and is intended to provide basic dental care for medically underserved children and adults, regardless of ability to pay. In addition to accepting Medicaid and Medicare, Mountain Family Health Centers will offer a sliding scale discount based on income. The mobile dental van will remain in the El Jebel Community Center parking lot for the next 18 months.

Services include dental prevention and cleanings, x-rays, complete dental exams, sealant placements, topical fluoride applications, emergency procedures, simple extractions, fillings and removable devices to replace missing teeth at the dental van.

The grand opening event will begin at 9 a.m. with tours available until 3 p.m. Refreshments will be served between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. and presentations are expected to take place from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. For more information, visit www.mountainfamily.org or call 970-945-2840.

The Dental Van will be open four days per week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and closed Wednesdays. Appointments may be made by calling 970-945-2840. Mountain Family purchased the dental van with an Oral Health Services Expansion grant from the Federal Bureau of Primary Care Health Resources Services Administration.
