Who We Are

Smile Programs…the mobile dentists is the nation’s leading in-school dental program founded more than two decades ago by two moms, who happen to also be dentists. The founders saw a tremendous need among underserved school aged children who did not have easy access to dental care and who often suffered from poor oral hygiene, tooth decay, pain and associated health problems.

 

Knowing that many parents could not take their children to the dentist due to issues including time off from work and transportation challenges, they sought to bring the care to the need.

 

Using the latest technology in portable equipment, a team of dedicated dental professionals provide preventive and restorative dental care to children right at school.  Our flexibility and expertise allow us to transform classrooms, auditoriums, gyms or other suitable areas into fully functional dental offices for the day.

 

Every year, through its devoted group of dental professionals, Smile Programs…the mobile dentists puts happy, healthy smiles on over 500,000 children from coast to coast.

 

Join us in our mission to bring smiles and good oral health to where they are needed. Call or text us at 855-957-4375 or email jobs@mobiledentists.com. You’ll be glad you did.

 

Rewarding Work. Competitive Compensation. Smile Programs.
