About Titans for Teeth Mobile Dental

The Titans for Teeth Mobile Dental Clinic is a 38-foot mobile dental coach, which is an eight-chair clinic; four chairs are inside of the van and four chairs are portable units that are set up on-site, on-location. Throughout the academic year, the clinic travels to local participating schools in Detroit and Wayne County to provide comprehensive care for K-12 children. Treatment is performed by dental students under the supervision of a licensed dentist and/or dental hygienist faculty. Click to read more.
