Free Adult Dental Clinic Visits Greensboro (via @WFMY)

29 Aug


GREENSBORO, N.C. – Triad adults in need have a new reason to smile – a traveling clinic is in Greensboro to give out free dental care!

According to Dr. Scott Vines, a dentist who helped coordinate the event, the clinic expects to treat more than 1,000 patients for free in the 2-day period. More than 680 volunteers are expected to help run the clinic including dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, laboratory technicians and general volunteers from the public.

“So many adults in need don’t go to the dentist because they simply don’t have the money,” Dr. Vines said. “But oral health is just as important as any other kind of health, and we want to help all people get access.”

Friday is the first day of the 2-day dental clinic, hosted by NC Mission of Mercy (NCMOM) at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex.

Patients can get free dental exams, cleanings, fillings, tooth removals and root canals.

Registration opens at 6:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. Patients will be seen from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday and from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Event organizers said they plan to hand out wristbands around 4 p.m. on Friday for people who need dental care on Saturday. Patients are treated on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be called in based on wristband number.
