Welcome to The Molar Express!

The Molar Express provides comprehensive dental services to youth up to age 21 in local communities at no out of pocket cost to families.

The Molar Express is Rhode Island’s, Ronald McDonald care mobile. The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile provides cost-effective, high-quality dental and health education services in rural and urban areas. All Ronald McDonald Care Mobile services are provided in a 40-foot long, 8-foot wide, state-of-the-art vehicle built specifically for delivering pediatric health care services.

The Molar Express is operated by three Rhode Island health and human services agencies: Comprehensive Community Action Program (CCAP), East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP), and Thundermist Health Centers.


Patients must be under the age of 21 and attend participating schools, head start programs, and other community programs in areas serviced by the three partnering agencies. There are also some limited opportunities for children from non-participating institutions to receive services. Call us for more information.

Your dental insurance will be billed if your child receives care on the Care Mobile or in the school. If you have no dental insurance (or your dental insurance does not cover a dental service that your child receives in that school or on the Care Mobile), you will not be charged for the dental service. However, some children may be referred to one of the partnering agencies’ community health centers for dental work if they require extensive treatment. When care is delivered at the community health center and you have no dental insurance, dental care will be provided on a sliding scale based on your family income and family size.

The Molar Express is supported in Partnership with Comprehensive Community Action Programs (CCAP) East Bay Community Action Programs (EBCAP) and Thundermist Health centers along with Ronald McDonald house Charities of New England.
