Ronald McDonald Care Mobile »
The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile – a dental clinic on wheels – provides dental care to underserved children in the 14-county Twin Cities metropolitan area.
A child’s lack of dental care can pose severe implications to overall health, in addition to many missed days of school and falling behind. We are helping ensure healthy kids and happy smiles, by working to prevent dental disease–the number one chronic childhood illness. One only needs to look at the smiling faces of kids who have visited the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile to see the positive effect it has.

Since launching in late 2009, more than 4,135 patients throughout the 14-county Twin Cities metro area have received care. This program has provided more than $1.2 million in necessary oral health treatment in our local community. The impact is amazing!
During clinics held at schools, youth events and community and family-based organizations, patients who visit the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile may receive:
- Dental cleanings
- Fluoride treatments
Education on proper dental care is also offered by the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile team.
“The very best part is the pleasant experience,” said Terese Haggerty Lueck from The Family Partnership, a site partner with this program. “The impact is astounding. You almost have to see it to understand what it means for these families. This program is making a real, lasting difference.”
