Long Island, New York is the home of the prestigious research institute of Stony Brook University. Housing over 2,400 undergraduate students’ yearly and about 134,000 alumni, the University sits on 1,039 acres across the Northern shore of the Island. Amongst the different graduate programs that Stony Brook offers, the dental school is notable for the services it provides.
The Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine has an excellent reputation for their quality work in education and research. Along with the Dental Care Center, the School provides oral health care services primarily to the Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Due to their continued support for the underserved communities, Stony Brook University purchased a 40’ Mobile Dental Clinic.
In expanding their services, the School hopes to create more accessibility, preventive care services and emergency services for their patients. Transportation to Long Island is challenging and limited for many of the people seeking oral health care. In purchasing a mobile dental clinic, Stony Brook can now offer oral health care in a different environment while still keeping their professional demeanor. Students will provide the care while learning and being guided by their professors.
Universal Specialty Vehicles, Inc. manufactured the 40’ Mobile Dental Clinic in Perris, California. The entire vehicle was custom built to meet the needs of Stony Brook University. Dr. Allan Kucine, (Associate Professor and Acting Chair Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery), was very involved in the design and final product. The mobile vehicle is equipped with three dental operatories (each placed in their own exam room), a Sterilization area, a Panoramic Digital X-Ray area, a Ricon Wheelchair Lift and a 7’x2’ MB-55 Diesel Slide out room. Stony Brook University estimated a minimum of 4,500 patient visits during their first year. The number of patient visits thereafter is projected to increase over time.
