Teledentistry leader MouthWatch has announced the 5 winners of its TeleDentMobile Dentistry Accelerator Awards. These awards were created to honor for-profit and non-profit mobile dentistry platforms and supplement those who may have been shut down due to COVID-19.

MouthWatch wanted to show their commitment to serving communities who would benefit the most from mobile dentistry such as senior citizens, housebound patients, special needs individuals, the homeless, and the uninsured among others, according to a press release from MouthWatch.

“Our goal was to fast-track the rebound of innovative mobile dentistry programs with the greatest potential for increasing the access to oral care for the underserved,” Founder and CEO of MouthWatch Brant Herman said in a press release.

The 5 winners spanned across the United States, and are as follows in no particular order:

  • Everlasting Smiles 4 U, Washington State. This mobile dentistry platform is run by Paula Nguyen, RDH.
