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.
