From the Nurse's Office

Family Health Care has a new mobile dental unit that will begin visiting Moorhead schools in October. Students, with the permission of parents, can have dental exams conveniently during school hours.

This 40-foot long mobile clinic was created to meet families in convenient locations. Through this mobile clinic, Family Health Care offers dental exams, dental cleanings, x-rays, pulpotomy, dental sealants, extractions, fillings, fluoride treatment and root canal therapy.

Family Health Care accepts private insurance and state insurance. If a family does not have insurance, they offer a sliding scale to provide affordable dental exams.

If the dentist recommends a treatment plan, parents will be contacted.
