DULUTH, MN -

Athletes with the Special Olympics were treated to a brighter, whiter smile in Duluth.

The UCare Mobile Dental Clinic teamed up with the Special Olympics for their stop in the Twin Ports Wednesday. 

Dubbed the "dentist's office on wheels," the Mobile Dental Clinic offers routine check-ups, cleanings, and simple restorative care on a specially designed, 43-foot bus.

Organizers say it's a pleasure serving these athletes.

"Were treating under-served patients across the state of Minnesota. That's what the mission is for this mobile dental clinic, and thanks to UCare for this inspiration to put this bus on the road, we get to travel to all parts of the state, treating UCare members," says clinic director Paul Schulz, "but today is special, treating Special Olympic Athletes, and we are thrilled to do that"

The Mobile Dental Clinic is staffed by U of M School of Dentistry faculty, and students.
