Columbia University currently offers free dental care for pre-school age children from the Manhattanville in West Harlem area through the Mobile Dental Center.

The Community DentCare Network is a series of partnerships and collaborations with neighborhood schools and community health clinics, designed to provide patient-centered dental services to northern Manhattan’s low-income, underserved, and uninsured residents. The network includes six school-based clinics and a Mobile Dental Center linked to five community-based practices. The program has logged more than 150,000 patient care visits in its nearly 20-year history.
