Healthy Mouth Movement

Danica Patrick, Aspen Dental, and Oral Health America are proud to bring the Healthy Mouth Movement to communities in need.

 

We’re proud to partner with Danica Patrick to bring you the Healthy Mouth Movement.

Danica Patrick is shining a spotlight on an often overlooked healthcare issue – oral health – as she teams up with Aspen Dental and Oral Health America to announce the Healthy Mouth Movement, a community giving initiative designed to deliver free dental care to thousands of people in need in communities across the U.S., and oral health education to millions more.

 

“Last year nearly 100 million Americans didn’t visit a dentist, and millions more live in communities with little or no access to dental care,” said Patrick, driver of the No. 10 Chevrolet SS in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

“This is an issue that affects a lot of hard-working people, including NASCAR fans, who are often living in pain. It’s time to do something about it, and that’s why I’m proud to partner with Aspen Dental and Oral Health America.”

Through the Healthy Mouth Movement, dentists and team members from every Aspen Dental practice in 28 states will devote a day to providing much-needed dental care to those who need it most – free of charge, no questions asked. And to reach communities where care isn’t available, the newly-constructed Aspen Dental MouthMobile, a fully-equipped dental office on wheels, will go directly into communities to not only provide free service, but raise awareness.

What is the Aspen Dental MouthMobile?

The Aspen Dental MouthMobile is a fully-equipped dental office on wheels, which travels directly into places where care isn’t available to provide free service and raise awareness on the importance of oral health. It has two fully-functioning treatment rooms as well as a digital X-ray unit and denture repair lab.

What kind of service will people be able to get?

In the spirit of helping as many people as possible, dentists will be focused on treating the most urgent dental need of each patient by providing a dental service such as a filling, extraction or denture repair.

Do patients need insurance/payment?

No. Aspen Dental team members are volunteering their time and talents – no payment will be accepted.

Will patients be required to prove that they are unable to afford care?

No. Patients will not be charged for any services, nor will they be asked to show any proof of income or need.
