Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® Program
Delivering free dental care directly to underserved children in their own neighborhoods.
For children without access to regular dental care, the lack of preventative measures and untreated cavities can lead to a variety of oral diseases. The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® Program – dental offices on wheels – offer a solution by caring for thousands of Southwest Florida children in underserved communities each year.
Through philanthropic support and our partnership with Family Health Centers of Southwest Florida and Healthcare Network, we have not one but two Care Mobiles to serve Lee, Hendry, and Collier Counties. In fact, of the 40 total Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles in the world, we are very proud that we have two to serve our communities.

Since 2004, the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile I has traveled to schools, community centers and neighborhoods to deliver dental and medical care to children in lower-income areas.

Visiting 14 Title 1 schools (those with a high percentage of students from low income families), as well as select after-school programs and a variety of family-oriented festivals, the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile is just one of the ways Healthcare Network is breaking barriers to healthcare in Collier County
