Delta Dental Mobile

The Delta Dental Mobile came to Watertown June 7-18, 2021. Delta Dental served 56 children last year and provided over $28,000 in dental care at no cost to youth or for families! Thank you to the Watertown Intermediate school for letting  the Delta Dental Mobile park for two full weeks in front of the school and for letting the dental hygenist use a room in the school for cleanings. Thanks to the amazing volunteer interpreters United Way can offer translating services at the Delta Dental bus each year! Without volunteers we would not be able to serve our primarily Spanish speaking families who are in need of dental care. If you would like to volunteer for this year's bus visit at registration or offer translating services for Spanish or any other language please sign up at this link. Click here. 

If you are interested in getting an appointment or on the waitlist for the next bus visit call our office at (605) 886-5815. Community Transit will be offering free transportation to the Delta Dental visit but you must schedule transportation through Watertown Area United Way at (605) 886-5815. 

 

The Delta Dental Mobile will come in the first two weeks of June in 2022 and will CHANGE LOCATION and be at the Watertown Regional Library. Call our office to get on the waitlist now at 886-5815.
