If your child is age 3-18 and has Medical Assistance as their primary insurance, they are eligible for Dental Services-preventative and restorative through the Healthy Smiles, Happy Kids Mobile Dental Van. Once a child is enrolled, the Dental Van becomes their dental home and they are seen on the Dental van for regular check-ups every 6 months.

The Dental Van travels throughout the school year to the elementary, junior high and high schools in the 5 school districts throughout Carbon County (Jim Thorpe, Lehighton, Palmerton, Panther Valley and Weatherly) as well as Tamaqua School District in Schuylkill County

Appointments are scheduled during school hours and students are called from class to the Dental Van for their dental appointment and then return to class.
