Mobile dental clinic hitting the road from Buffalo

Associated Press Published: November 10, 2012

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — A three-chair mobile dental clinic is ready to hit the road from the University at Buffalo.

The 42-foot long clinic unveiled Friday is built on a semi-trailer chassis. It's bound for Chautauqua (shuh-TAW-kwuh) County, where it will move between 24 elementary schools and treat children.

The western New York county has been designated a Dental Health Professional Shortage Area, with few dentists serving Medicaid-eligible patients.

The UB dental school's state-of-the-art mobile clinic — called "S-miles To Go" — is equipped with a panoramic X-ray unit, digital radiography and electronic patient records.

It was funded by a grant from the federal government, as well as private donations.
