Equipped by Patterson Dental
Whether you’re remodeling your practice or your office has been damaged by a natural disaster, reducing downtime is critical to the well-being and future success of your practice.

Fortunately, there’s a solution to keep you up and running: temporary dental offices from Dental Access Mobile Clinics. Designed by dentist John E. Reese III, DMD, temporary dental offices are equipped with the latest equipment and technology from Patterson Dental. Each office comes standard with two spacious operatories that allow for true four-handed dentistry, including complex surgical and restorative procedures. “You can do any procedure in the van that you can do in a private office,” Reese said.
Designed by Dentists, for Dentists
The temporary dental offices concept first started as a community service effort. After he began seeing Medicaid patients in his private practice in 2000, Reese realized that transportation was one of the biggest barriers for children to receive much needed dental care. To eliminate that barrier, he created a mobile dental clinic in an RV that visited elementary schools throughout the area. The concept was a big success, prompting Reese to sell his brick and mortar practice and expand into the mobile clinics full time. While the RV was functional, he quickly realized the need for a van designed specifically for dentistry to be more efficient and effective when treating patients.
In 2001, Reese contacted every RV and mobile medical unit manufacturer in the United States to find someone to produce his mobile dental clinics. None of them were able to create the mobile clinics with the specifications and price he required, so the doctor decided to design the mobile office on his own. Working with a specialty transportation manufacturer and Patterson Dental, Reese created a fully functional dental office on wheels - and the concept of making and selling the mobile clinics to other doctors was born. “Ours are the only vans designed by dentists for dentists,” Reese said.
