Those affected by the registry and family members often find themselves at the mercy of not being able to afford dental care or coverage. However, the North Carolina Dental Society offers free dental services to the public called Missions of Mercy (MOM). There is no need to prove income or other hoops to receive free dental care. The only requirement is to show up early and get in line to register.
The next scheduled MOM clinic will be held on October 18-19, 2019 at the Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte, NC. Patients are treated on a first-come, first-serve basis beginning at 6:00 am each day. Upon arrival, patients receive a health screening, x-rays and an examination by a licensed dentist. Then, the patient and dentist will discuss the recommended treatment plan. Offered dental procedures may include cleanings, fillings, teeth pulling or partial dentures for front teeth.
For more information about this and future MOM events, visit ncdental.org or call 919-234-4037. If you miss this free event, don’t worry. The next scheduled dental clinic will be March 27-28, 2o20 in High Point.
