Zufall Dental Van

The services that we can provide on that van for the event is an establishing patient appointment (includes full mouth x-ray, full mouth exam, and dental cleaning). If a resident is having an issue with a tooth (i.e. they have a chip or having pain), they can also be seen this day but only for this one issue.

If someone needs a follow-up after this first appointment, we can help them create a follow-up appointment for more in-depth services such as extractions, fills, or dentures.

Each appointment is going to be thirty minutes long. We ask that everyone arrive fifteen minutes before their appointment so that we can allow time for all paperwork and ID/insurance to be scanned in.

“I just want to thank you so much for assisting me with getting the vaccine…I am getting my first shot this morning!”
