For the Moody family of seven kids, going to the dentist is not always easy. So when they were able to visit the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, between all of them, they were able to get five fillings. Plus, one tooth was pulled.
Nick Moody says, “In this economy, it’s so expensive to go to a dentist but the Care Mobile didn’t cost us anything and I think that’s amazing in itself, considering the generosity of all the companies participating in this.”
The Care Mobile is a state of the art dentist’s office on wheels that is delivering oral health care to children throughout western North Dakota. Every week, it treats about 75 kids who couldn’t otherwise afford to see a dentist.
