Abstract : A mobile maintenance facility (dental), was developed to provide mobile modern dental health care delivery in a controlled environment for nearly every situation. The van is capable of being transported by numerous transportation modes and is fully operational within two hours after arrival at the desired location. The two-operatory dental van utilizes field equipment, presently available, to provide dental treatment in all disciplines of dentistry, except prosthodontia. The van may be useful in the field with the Marines, aboard ships without dental facilities, pierside, in overseas area where permanent construction is not desired, to increase the capability of present dental facilities during emergencies. The van may possibly be of value to public health groups to provide mobile dental facilities in non-military environments. (Author)
