Mobile-Portable Hybrid Rochester's Collaborative School-Based Dental Program
c. What are some staffing considerations?


Each mobile unit includes a team of four people, including a dentist, dental hygienist, dental assistant, and clerical coordinator. Dental residents from Eastman Dental School also complete rotations on the mobile units. A pediatric or general dentist and dental assistant provide comprehensive care, while dental hygienists provide preventive services. Classroom education is provided to all classrooms interested in receiving this service. The clerical coordinator functions as a liaison with the host school, working directly with school administrators, teachers, nurses and social workers to enroll children, process paperwork, establish treatment schedules and process insurances.
