Thursday, April 8, 2004

THAYER -- The Elks Mobile Central Unit will be in Thayer May 3 at the Thayer-Mammoth Spring Saddle Club on Rodeo Drive.

The unit is operated by the Dental Department of the Truman Medical Center.

Since 1962 the mobile unit has been traveling the state giving dental care to eligible Missourians.

"The purpose of the program is to bring primary care dental services to handicapped and crippled children as well as mentally retarded children across Missouri. Over 100,000 residents have been served since 1962," said program director Barbara Cushman.

Cushman said all services are provided free to eligible patients.

The mobile unit will be in Thayer through May 20.

Oregon County residents interested in more information about the mobile unit can call Cushman at 816-404-6904.
