Serving the least of these, since 1972

Bringing smiles, joy, and the gospel to many thankful patients in the previously impassable
mountainous regions of Mexico.

Early in our ministry, we discovered that the neediest among us are unable to reach our clinics. Instead, they are isolated in faraway regions, many miles from vehicles, roads, and help. Our solution? Go to them! In 1972, Ken Small and Bill Williams operated RLM’s first mobile dental clinic, bringing smiles, joy, and the gospel to many thankful patients. In 2014, RLM launched the “Smile Mobile,” a custom-built mobile clinic equipped to traverse the previously impassable mountainous regions of Mexico.

Where does the Smile Mobile go?

The Smile Mobile travels where it’s needed most. This takes us to many orphanages and homeless communities. The 4WD capabilities of the Smile Mobile permit us to reach isolated communities that have until now been out of reach.

What is inside the Smile Mobile?

A full-service dental clinic, including a state-of-the-art portable digital x-ray device.

How much does it cost to run the Smile Mobile?

Each outing costs approximately $300.00.

Who staffs the Smile Mobile?

Dental professionals from the United States join with Filadelfia Dental to staff the Smile Mobile.

What are patients charged?

The Smile Mobile provides free care to its patients.

What is ``down the road`` for the Smile Mobile?

Our goal is to have the Smile Mobile “on the road” every day of the week.

I'd like to serve on the Smile Mobile!
