On Nov. 12, officials and community leaders joined leaders from Columbia University at its Manhattanville campus in West Harlem to celebrate the debut of the new Mobile Dental Center operated by Columbia’s College of Dental Medicine (@columbiacdm).
The mobile dentistry program will deliver health screenings and low-cost dental care to residents of Northern Manhattan and the Bronx. The new Mobile Dental Center, easily noticeable in bright blue, replaces and improves upon the school’s previous mobile clinic, now decommissioned.
