Zufall Health Delta Dental Mobile
The Zufall Health Delta Dental Mobile is a licensed extension of Zufall Health. Community partners in areas of high need throughout Zufall’s service area are able to request the van to visit their site to provide high-quality, affordable dental care. To request a van visit, please email our Mobile Site Manager, Gilberto Miramontes or contact him at 973-328-9100, ext. 271. To view the van’s schedule, click here.
Eligibility: Zufall provides preventive dental services to children in high-need areas, the homeless, public housing residents, veterans, and farm workers and their family members via a mobile health van. Patients who are uninsured or have Medicaid or NJ Family Care can receive services on the van. Pre-registration is usually required but walk-ons are also welcome. Individuals with private insurance cannot be seen on the van.
Appointments: Once a van visit is arranged with a partner site, a liaison at the site schedules the appointments a week before the event. The Van/Outreach staff provides information and a scheduling template to the host site. In cases where a liaison is not available, the Zufall Outreach staff will register the patients and schedule the appointments.
Services: The dental van offers a range of dental services for children and adults.
Procedure: New dental patients who are not currently registered and receiving medical care at Zufall Health must register prior to making their first dental appointment. Registration can be done on-site at one of our locations in Dover, Morristown, Flemington, Hackettstown, West Orange, or Newton or at one of our Dental Outreach events. To request a van visit, please email our Mobile Site Manager, Gilberto Miramontes or contact him at 973-328-9100, ext. 271. To view the van’s schedule, click here.
Registration: New patients will need to bring:
2. Proof of income such as a pay stub, income tax return, or a letter of employment
3. Verification of address
Patients without health insurance will be charged a sliding scale fee based on their ability to pay.
First Visit: The first dental visit consists of a clinical exam, x-rays, and treatment plan. Patients are then scheduled for an appointment for a cleaning or periodontal scaling based on the condition of their gums. All patients should bring a current list of medications, allergies, hospitalizations, and medical problems for the first visit and inform the dentist of any changes at future visits.
