Each year, Vineyard Smiles provides care to over 400 island children and low-income adults.
Introduced in August 2005, the Vineyard Smiles Program grew out of a grant from the Oral Health Foundation of Dental Services of Massachusetts. The grant allowed for a complete assessment of oral health assets and needs in Dukes County.
Through Vineyard Smiles, Commonwealth Mobile Oral Health Services, a portable dental service: the dentist travels to the Island with portable dental equipment, instruments and supplies. Vineyard Smiles staff coordinates visits to six island public schools; schedules patients and sites, and provides dental assistance during the exam. Services include exams, x-rays, cleanings, fluoride treatment, sealants, fillings, emergency treatment and extractions.
Vineyard Smiles also offers monthly oral hygiene clinics for seniors and disabled adults with support from the Town Boards of Health via their health promotion service. Hygiene services are provided by Polished LLC.
