It's a routine trip to the dentist for Beverly Greenwood of Keene, N.Y.
"Very important, it's nice to have your own teeth when you get to be my age," she said.
It may look like an ordinary dentist office on the inside, but it's really a dentist office on wheels.
"All I have to do is drive five seconds or walk. It's nice for the older people," Greenwood said. "I don't have to drive over that horrible road from Keene to Lake Placid."
For a fourth year, Adirondack Health's Mobile Dental Clinic is on the road across the Adirondacks.
"Anything we do in the office we do here; cleanings, extractions, fillings, root canals, sometimes," said Dr. Al Edgecombe of the Adirondack Medical Center.
The clinic on wheels is designed to serve residents of all ages in rural communities where dental care is limited and traveling to the dentist may take a while.
"We have a lot of patients that physically can't get to Lake Placid. It makes it easier," Edgecombe said.
Last year, 418 patients visited the mobile clinic. It accepts most insurance plans, including Medicaid. Even people who are uninsured are welcomed.
"Oral health is just as important as overall health. It's all connected," Edgecombe said.
Greenwood is all smiles after her appointment-- and not just because it was so close to home.
"I don't have any cavities," she said.
