Van donation expands access to care for underserved children in Lone Star State

St. David’s Foundation provides mobile dental van for pediatric dentist in central Texas

Sometimes a van can do so much more than just being a van.

It can provide access to care.

Help the underserved.

Establish dental homes.

That’s the aim of a recent donation from St. David’s Foundation of a mobile dental van to Alexandra Otto, D.D.S., a pediatric dentist in Buda, Texas.

Dr. Otto, through her nonprofit foundation, has a goal of providing free pediatric dental care to children in rural counties in Central Texas who otherwise have little to no access to care.

The grant was facilitated by Shailee Gupta, D.D.S., chair of the ADA Council on Advocacy for Access and Prevention, through her role as chief dental officer of the Texas-based St. David’s Foundation. St. David’s Foundation has one of the largest charity-based mobile dental programs in the country and is guided by a commitment to advance health equity.
