Bringing The Dentist To You

UB Dental's S-Miles To Go program provides dental care to vulnerable populations through two state-of-the-art mobile dental units. Our mobile vans increase access to critical oral health care services for children in rural communities, parents and children living on Buffalo's East Side, low-income older adults, homeless individuals and people with disabilities.

Services include exams, cleanings, fillings, sealants, fluoride treatments and extractions. The vans contain several dental chairs, a panoramic X-ray machine, sanitization center, a patient waiting area, and a powered chair lift for patients with disabilities. The vans are staffed by pediatric and general dentists from the UB School of Dental Medicine, as well as a dental hygienist and a dental assistant.

Through the program, we're enhancing access to quality oral health care to vulnerable populations and providing our students with firsthand experience treating individuals from low-income backgrounds, those with special needs, and pediatric patients.
