This Mobile Dentist Is Giving Underserved Children Something to Smile About
In Missouri, needy children have no access to dental care. Miles of Smiles is changing that by making office visits affordable and convenient.

According to Christy May, executive director of Miles of Smiles, 26,000 children in Clay and Platte Counties, Missouri, are without access to dental care.

That’s where her nonprofit comes in. Miles of Smiles delivers comprehensive dental services on-the-go to patients who qualify. Families earning less than twice the federal poverty guidelines are eligible for free care.
