The Mobile Dentist, which began visiting Laurel Park last fall and had a weekly presence last winter beginning in January, has begun serving the backstretch community at Pimlico Race Course.
On Tuesday, Aug. 16, nine people were treated in the mobile unit, which provides full-service dental care. Another 13 people have signed up for future visits.
Plans call for Mobile Dentist, based in Silver Spring, Md., to be on site at Pimlico once every two weeks, though the schedule is determined on weekly basis depending on demand and other clients that use the Mobile Dentist service. Visits are expected to continue through the fall.
The Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association is hopeful the Mobile Dentist can return to Laurel in early 2023. Even with the additional service, the MTHA continues to work with its other dental partners located near Laurel and Pimlico.
MTHA Office Manager Diana Pinones schedules appointments for the Mobile Dentist. She can be reached at 410-902-6842.
