Parents who have difficulty paying for their child’s dental services will have an affordable option in the summer.
QueensCare is once again collaborating with the University of Southern California and the Los Angeles Unified School District to bring a mobile dental clinic to families in the Los Angeles area. The mobile clinic will be located at White Memorial Medical Center in East Los Angeles and provides free dental care to low-income students in both public schools and qualifying Catholic elementary schools.
The mobile dental clinic will be offering dental care for children from ages 5 to 18 until Aug. 5. Services are provided between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Dental cleanings, teeth sealing, root canals, fillings and more are all provided at no cost.
