Collaborative Efforts
Tooth Mobile has developed some of its most beneficial programs in conjunction with other organizations. These joint ventures allow us to expand our reach and care. We have successfully combined our efforts with:

FUTURES (Families United to Ultimately Realize School Success) Program in Daly City
FUTURES, launched in 1995 and now operating at thirteen sites in San Mateo County, delivers physical and mental health and human services, along with academic support for low-income and at risk students. The program emphasizes the collective responsibility of families, the community, government agencies, and schools for the well-being of our children. Tooth Mobile provides comprehensive dental care for FUTURES members at their sites.

South County Community Health Clinic in East Palo Alto
In December 2001, the South County Community Health Clinic opened its doors to begin providing medical care and health outreach to the people of East Palo Alto, Belle Haven, and Fair Oaks. The facility provides primary health care and human services, particularly to the most vulnerable populations, the elderly and children. Patients also benefit from preventative physical and mental health services and neo-natal and infant care. In the first four months of its operations, the clinic treated more than 1,000 patients and hosted 100 meetings focused on community issues.

Due to the requests of various organizations, Tooth Mobile was selected as a solution to enhance S.C.C.H.C. service and was approached by Stanford and Lucile Packard to provide free dental care at the site. Currently, Tooth Mobile is stationed at the Clinic twice per month to add dental services-including cleanings, fillings, root canals and extractions-to the array of services provided at the facility. On average, thirty-two East Palo Alto residents are treated each month.
