Press Releases

The Oklahoma Dental Foundation unveils the first of five new MobileSmiles Oklahoma dental clinics, which were purchased with the $5.1M in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds awarded to the ODF in 2023. These state-of-the-art dental facilities will be deployed long term in geographical locations around the state to serve Oklahomans with the greatest need and the least ability to acquire oral health care. MobileSmiles is a collaborative program of the ODF and site partners including non-profits, schools, churches and organizations already working to address health issues in the community. The average daily operational cost is $3,100. The State of Oklahoma also provides underwriting support through a direct appropriation by the Legislature and through SoonerCare. In 2023, MobileSmiles visited 146 sites across Oklahoma, serving nearly 1,300 patients, 80 percent of which lived in households with annual incomes of less than $20,000, and totaled almost $600,000 in industry value of dental care provided to those in need.

“The need is there for longterm dental support in many areas of the state,” said John Wilguess, Oklahoma Dental Foundation executive director. “The new MobileSmiles Oklahoma clinics will, in effect, allow the ODF to serve five times the number of patients we have seen in past years. As MobileSmiles programming continues to develop, the dental facility may become a dental home for some communities.”
