Legacy Foundation awards $2,000 to Medical Teams International Dental Van


Continuing into their third decade of helping to make Des Moines a better community through parks, recreation and senior services, the Des Moines Legacy Foundation will be awarding $2,000 to the Grace Lutheran Church sponsored Medical Teams International Dental Van in 2019.

The funds will help support dental needs for low income seniors in the Des Moines community.

“We are so pleased to have been receiving the support for the senior dental needs from the Des Moines Legacy Foundations since 2008,” said Sandra Bollinger, a volunteer dental van coordinator. “It really helps us to meet the vital dental needs of Des Moines seniors who cannot afford regular dental office fees.”

“While the I was manager at the Des Moines/Normandy Park Senior Center, many of our regular participants benefited from the Medical Teams International dental van for their dental needs,” added Sue Padden, a Des Moines Legacy director and retired senior services manager for the City. “The process is easy and the van is scheduled at least twice a month, with a total of 16 van visits in 2018.”

The mobile dental van parks at Grace Lutheran Church at the corner of 24th Avenue and Kent/Des Moines Road.

For more information on the Mobile Dental Van, which provides dental services for all ages in the community, based on income, please contact Sandra Bollinger, 206-817-3698. Dental Van applications are also available at the Des Moines/Normandy Park Senior Center.
