Does anyone know more information on this? Certain days there are to be student dentists at the local Lighthouse Church doing cleanings, fillings, etc. I heard some ladies discussing what all they did, but I don't know when or what I need to do. Thanks in advance.

they are actually real dentist that come on this bus and it is to help paople who dont have insurance for dental.they do a very good job and you cant go to a dentist and get 1 tooth pulled for $20 let alone several at a time.a friend of mine was able to get all of her teeth pulled at a fraction of the "normal" cost and was able to afford dentures so she looked nice.it is a very good deal.there is suppose to be some deal with the state of Missouri for them to do this to help people who need the service.i know they take emergency cases 1st,then i believe its 1st come 1st serve.i think they start taking names at like 6:30 in the morning on the days they do it.like i said the church will tell you what they know and what days they are their.it is definately worth it.

You need a reality check, in these times, hard working people are struggling. I think you are pathetic!! Just wait until you have a major toothache and maybe you have lost your job the week before? Then what? Moron.

Why don't you change your stupid name to "Captain Clueless".

I played $800 for a root canal, I know what its like to have to pay for a dentist out of pocket. I still wouldn't put my dental care in the hands of one of these "drive by dentists" Its mostly method heads getting teeth pulled anyway from their drug habits. Like I said, I'd be embarrassed to be seen there. God bless them if its hard working people who are struggling, they need to be seen first.

It isn't the Show mobile it's their very own ministry with Dr Riddle and Dr Kane. And Mr Captain it is people on all walks of life that have the dental work done there. It's the last Saturday of each month. It's certainly not embarrassing to save money it's COMMON SENSE as Thomas Paine would say.Oh and Father God I pray that you would hear my prayer and keep your mighty hand upon Mr. Captain and let no evil come to him but expand his coast. I pray abundance up him and love over flowing like only you can!:)

The Dental clinic is called "Smiles of Hope" & it is the last Saturday of every month. The next clinic will be Feb 23, 2013. You don't need an appointment but since it is 1st come 1st serve it is recommended that patients start registering by 5:00 AM. The cost is $20 for the first tooth extracted which includes x-ray & exam. An additiona $5 per tooth is charged if more than one is pulled. Everyone who needs help is welcome to come.

No, right now all they are set up to do is extractions. They are hoping to be able to do more soon.

Ok. Thank you! No, I'm not a drug user before anything is said. I have worked all my life and the drs made me stop working due to health problems. I'm 51 and all my teeth are mine. Have one that has a crack on the corner and would like to get it fixed before it becomes completely detached. Do you know of any good dentists that could repair it that are reasonably priced?

I will check around & see if I can find anything out for you. And please forgive the person(s) who made those drug user comments. They must be hurting themselves if they trying that hard to make someone else feel bad. All we can do is pray for them.

I have checked my resources & I have been told that your best bet would be the SEMO Health network in Bernie, MO. They take patients on a sliding scale depending on their income. I hope this helps.

How dare anyone make rude comments about someone needing dental care. If you can afford to pay out of pocket then be Thankful. Lots of people can not. Look around, were not exactly living among the rich. These are hard times , for all of us. A service like this is hard to find , and so very needed. This maybe the only way a lot of people can be, Pain Free! Being in Pain , especially tooth pain , is pure agony. I've went through this, I know. I've missed work and school just because once the pain hit , I couldn't do anything else. The pain made it unbearable.
And NO I am not a drug head , never done drugs a day in my life. I work , and have always worked. Maybe that's WHY most of us will go to these clinics and get help. IWe have to work , there is no time to sit and be in pain. We're willing to get the help needed so we can be up doing what we need to be doing. So maybe it's the other way around. Did you ever think of that? I hope your always blessed and can always afford dental care. Cause if going to one of these clinics was your only option , what would you do? We wouldn't want you to be embarrassed , would we?
