MILWAUKEE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Kids in Milwaukee will soon be able to get much-needed dental care thanks to a new mobile dental clinic. The clinics are part of Columbia St. Mary's "Smart Smiles Program."

The program identifies kids that are in need of urgent dental care. The mobile clinics will be able to help 10 to 12 kids per day, five days a week at schools across Milwaukee County.

"40% of the children we serve in our schools right now are identified as having cavities. If we can bring the care to the kids in the schools, that's the most effective way to increase their access to the much-needed dental services," said Dental Clinic Manager Robyn Kibler. 

The dental clinic will travel to 65 schools across Milwaukee County. Columbia St Mary's hopes to have the dental clinics up and running in the next few weeks.
