Dates for UB S-miles to Go Free Dental Services at JPS

The University at Buffalo Dental Van will be at Jamestown schools locations this school year to offer free dental services. Here is the schedule:

4/1 to 4/30 - Persell Middle School

5/13 to 5/31 - Fletcher Elementary School

6/3 to 6/27 - Ring Elementary School

The S-Miles To Go program services more than 3,500 patients each year throughout Chautauqua County, a primarily rural area south of Buffalo.

Inside the van, children can get a variety of dental care including:

  • Exams
  • Cleanings
  • Fillings
  • Extractions
  • Crowns
  • Oral health screenings
  • Sealants
  • Fluoride treatment

The van is typically staffed by pediatric and general dentists from the School of Dental Medicine, as well as a dental hygienist and a dental assistant.

Approximately the size of a school bus, the van contains a state-of-the-art dental clinic including three dental chairs, a panoramic X-ray machine, a sanitization center and a patient waiting area. There is also a powered chair lift for disabled patients.
