Miles for Smiles mobile dental unit serves Barton, Cedar, Dade, Dallas, Hickory, Polk, St. Clair, Green, Vernon, Henry, Camdenton and Laclede counties and is owned and operated by Citizens Memorial Healthcare. Miles for Smiles provides quality, on-site dental care to uninsured and Medicaid children in 12 southwest Missouri counties. All Miles for Smiles services, which include oral exams, sealants, dental screenings, cleanings, fillings, X-rays, extractions, dental care instruction, and other dental services, as needed, are covered under the state Medicaid Medical Managed care plans or private pay.
Miles for Smiles was initiated through the Barceda Families program, which is a child abuse and neglect prevention resource center. Because of the shortage of dental care for low-income families in southwest Missouri, Barceda, in conjunction with Citizens Memorial Healthcare, applied for and was awarded a grant to fund the mobile dental clinic.
