Dentist office on wheels

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Although some of us remain afraid of going to the dentist, a few in Southern Minnesota are heading to a pretty unique spot to have their teeth looked at.

The UCare Mobile Dental Clinic is stopping in Rochester for the rest of the week, resting right in front of Olmsted County Public Health. The clinic is about 43-feet long and has three dental chairs, state of the art instruments, and a chairside digital radiograph. It’s for UCare members and is staffed by dental faculty-supervised students with the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry.

This mobile unit has been around since 2002. For more information, click here.
