Dr. Travis is a general dentist and the owner of Pine Lawn Dental. He currently sees a large number of patients a day, most of whom need emergency care.
He wanted a way to provide preventative care to these patients and to others with access to care issues, but was unable to leave his office to come to them.
Dr. Travis went to the University of the Pacific in San Francisco, CA where they are currently using teledentistry to provide preventative care in locations where people live, work, go to school, and receive social services. Together, with his colleague Mary Simokaitis, they have developed a way to reach these patients with their mobile practice, We Care Mobile Dental.
