Mobile Medical and Dental Unit

In addition to the Health Centers, the Mobile Medical and Dental Unit (MMDU) travels to remote rural areas of Odisha every year at regular intervals to provide health checkups, health camps, dental camps, health awareness camps, social awareness camps, and to distribute free medicine.

MMDU service was inaugurated in August 2002. The MMDU is a completely self-sufficient, air-conditioned vehicle, consisting of two chambers. The first chamber is equipped with a modern dental chair and ancillary setup. The second chamber has a small operating theater for simple surgery. Cases which require more advanced treatment are referred to a hospital in the neighboring city.
