Lake Norman Community Health Clinic and the Ada Jenkins Center were able to bring needed dental services to over 150 patients in 2019 and 2020 but had to stop midyear in 2020 due to COVID-19. The Mobile Unit needed upgrades to its air filtration and circulation system to allow for safe use.

According to April Cook, LNCHCC Director, dental care is hugely important to the health and well-being of uninsured patients. Ada Jenkins’ CEO Harold E. Rice, Jr., stressed the importance of local non-profits working together to increase their reach and efficacy during and post-pandemic. Staffed by local volunteer dentists, the Mobile Dentistry Bus hopes to serve 500 patients in 2021 now that their air circulation makes procedures safer.
