The Missouri Developmental Disabilities Council encourages Missourians with intellectual and developmental disabilities to utilize Enable Dental’s on-site mobile dental services.
In collaboration with the Missouri Coalition for Oral Health, Enable Dental is implementing a pilot program for teledentistry to serve individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Their dental team brings portable equipment and dental care into a patient’s home, day habilitation program or community.
The on-site mobile dental services include x-rays, exams, cleanings, fillings and extractions. The pilot program is now serving Cass, Clay, Jackson and Platte counties.
The Missouri Developmental Disabilities Council (MODDC) is a federally-funded, 23-member, consumer-driven council appointed by the Governor. Its mandate under P.L. 106-402, the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act, is to assure that individuals with developmental disabilities and their families participate in the design of and have access to needed community services, individualized supports, and other forms of assistance that promote self-determination, independence, productivity and integration in all aspects of community life.
