Reserve Mobile Dental for 2025

Florida Baptist churches and associations may reserve the Mobile Dental Ministry.  Florida Baptists have two units.  The first unit is a 40 foot mobile unit that has two operatories.  This unit provides treatment—extractions and fillings.  The second is a trailer with portable hygiene equipment.  You may reserve either one or both.  The church or association serves as sponsor of the dental mission.  This sponsor is responsible for establishing a local project planning team, enlisting patients, and recruiting dental care professionals, as well as planning for an evangelistic ministry in tandem with the dental ministry.

The Florida Baptist Mobile Dental Unit stays in high demand. Schedule for 2024 is nearly full.  If you want the unit for a dental mission in 2024, contact the Community Ministries Catalyst or (904) 571-8037 to discuss.

2025 Mobile Dental Unit Requests are being received now.

    Note:
    We will try to honor the first or second choice. However, often several Associations/Churches request the same weeks. Where possible, we try to put projects together that are in the same general location, such as the Panhandle, South Florida area, etc. This helps to save mileage on the unit and the travel time for our coordinators.

    2. Provide the mobile unit and dental supplies.

    4. Provide the hygiene unit and supplies.
    5. Provide a trainer for your team and dental hygienists.
