Mobile Dental Clinic

The The Mobile Dental Clinic is provided by the Florida Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention's North American Mission Board. The bus was purchased and built through donations to the Maguire State Mission Offering. The mission of the Baptist Mobile Dental Ministry is to help provide caring dental service and a Christian witness to Florida's needy.

Only patients who fall at or below the 150 percent poverty level are treated on the unit. The Mobile Dental Clinic is a wonderful ministry to the patients who are able to receive free dental care! Basic dentistry, such as fillings and tooth extractions, is performed on the unit. When more extensive work is needed, local dentists may volunteer to treat patients in their offices. Adults and children, six years and older, are examined and treated. The state-of-the-art mobile dental unit contains two treatment rooms, each equipped with x-ray equipment, fiber-optic hand pieces, supplies, and instruments needed for basic dentistry. Mobile dental coordinators are available to assist with sterilization and location of the instruments.

This ministry is supported by your gifts to the Cooperative Program of the Florida Baptist Convention. As the Apalachee Baptist Association plans for the next clinic in partnership with Calhoun Liberty Ministry Center Center and the Florida Baptist Convention, we will once again need the help of volunteers, local dentists, and churches. You can contact the Calhoun Liberty Ministry Center at (850) 674-1818 for more information.
