Fla. county gets $200K for mobile dental van

Florida's Bay County Health Department has received two $100,000 grants to purchase and operate a mobile dental van, according to a story in the News Herald.

The health department received one grant from the Blue Foundation for a Healthy Florida and the other from the Florida Department of Health.

"We will establish the Miles of Smiles program for children," grant writer Aleksandra Schippnick told the News Herald. "It will include preventive and restorative service to students in Bay County."

The health department has an agreement with the federally funded community dental clinic to provide dental services to uninsured and underinsured students in the county, the paper reported.

The mobile service is expected to be operating by October, Schippnick said.
