DETROIT (AP) - A customized bus will travel the Detroit area providing comprehensive dental care and oral health education to thousands of children.

The University of Detroit Mercy now has a so-called mobile dental coach that will bring dental care to children at schools across Wayne County, starting with Noble Elementary-Middle School in Detroit. The bus was being unveiled during an event Monday in Detroit.

More than $584,000 in grants from the Delta Dental Foundation is supporting the effort by the university’s School of Dentistry.

University of Detroit Mercy dental students and faculty will provide diagnostic, preventive and restorative treatment from the bus. More than 50 students are expected to be examined and receive preventive care or treatment during the two weeks that the bus is at Noble.
