Runner on the Mobile Dental Clinic
2 people are interested
The Dental Connections Smile Squad travels to metro area schools to provide dental exams and treatment on the Mobile Dental Clinic, an RV retro-fitted with two dental chairs. The Mobile Dental Clinic staffs two dental assistants and a dentist. Following a patient's exam or treatment, the dental assistant must sterilize the dental chair and surrounding area. The dentist completes the patient's notes.
With a runner to escort the school-aged children to and from their classroom, the assistants and dentist have time to complete their work and can be ready to see the next patient when he/she arrives. This helps the flow of patients run more efficiently, and the Smile Squad is able to see more patients in a day's time.
We'll work with your schedule.

- The Mobile Dental Clinic usually begins around 8am during the school year. Duration of need varies based on the number of patients, but usually wraps up around 2-3 pm.
- We're looking for someone empathetic, caring, and good with kids. Sometimes the children can be nervous about seeing the dentist, and it helps to have a calming presence. Volunteers also cannot be dental phobic themselves.
