CincySmiles has been a part of the community since 1909. Our name has changed over
the years, but our mission has remained the same: to ensure that low income residents
of Greater Cincinnati have access to dental treatment and prevention. Today we partner
with volunteer dentists who give of their time and services, government agencies
that understand the importance of good dental health, corporations who generously
support our mission, and individual donors who care about dental health.
Our programs include McMicken Dental Clinic for the homeless, school based sealant
teams, the Dental Road Crew, and Donated Dental Services and Dental Options. McMicken
Dental is part of the McMicken Health Collaborative, which addresses the holistic
needs of the homeless population. Services include access to health care, mental
health services, and dental care. Our school based sealant teams serve low income
children in eight counties in Greater Cincinnati. A dental hygienist and dental
assistant apply sealants to the molars of second graders and sixth graders. They
also provide hygiene instructions to students. The Dental Road Crew (DRC) provides
comprehensive dental services to low income children in Cincinnati Public Schools.
The DRC team works on a state-of-the-art dental mobile van. The team consists of
a dentist, three dental assistants (including an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant),
and a dental hygienist. For many of these students, the DRC is their first encounter
with a dentist. Finally, our Donated Dental Services Program (DDS) of Northern Kentucky
and the Dental OPTIONS program of Southern Ohio link patients in need to volunteer
dentists who provide comprehensive treatment on a no cost or deeply discounted basis.
