Ronald McDonald Care Mobile
"Delivering Hope on Wheels"

The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, a mobile dental clinic on wheels, delivers urgently needed dental care to underserved children ages 0 through 21 in their own neighborhoods in the western half of North Dakota. The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile of North Dakota is owned and operated by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Bismarck. We have partnered with Bridging the Dental Gap, Inc. of Bismarck, a non-profit dental clinic, to establish the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile Program. We strive to deliver our services in an atmosphere of kindness, compassion, caring and respect.

Ronald McDonald Care Mobile
Why a Mobile Dental Program?

One of the greatest unmet needs of low-income families is the need for dental care. More than one-half of North Dakota children have had tooth decay and more than one in five children have untreated tooth decay. The existing dental safety net clinics are not able to meet all of the current need in North Dakota. Untreated dental problems can result in pain and infection, create difficulty chewing and eating, and interfere with concentration and learning. The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile is a 40 foot long state of the art mobile dental clinic with its own dentist, dental hygienist and dental assistant. The mobile clinic staff deliver the dental care to underserved children in their own neighborhoods.
