Missions of Mercy, an outreach of the NC Dental Society, will hold a dental clinic November 5–6 at First Presbyterian Church. NCMOM provides dental examinations, restorations, and extractions to low-income adults (no children) at clinics across the state.
The clinic is open to adults with no dental insurance or access to care, whose income is at or below the following: $21,660 for singles / $29,340 for a married couple / $44,100 for a family of 4. Please bring proof of income with you. Examples are: pay stubs, utility bill, employer note or evidence of unemployment. If you have no documents for income verification, there will be an interview to determine eligibility.
No appointments are available, clients must be in line and will be assisted on a first come, first served basis. Depending on services the client needs and available dentists clients will be matched with dentists working from the front of the line.
Volunteer dentists and hygienists will provide only one service per client: cleaning, filling or extraction. Since the dentists need to help as many people as possible, they may not be able to take care of everything you need.
The clinic will be open from 6 am to 6 pm on Friday and 6 am to 3 pm on Saturday at First Presbyterian Church’s Mullin Life Center in Greensboro, NC. The entrance to clinic is on Greene Street, located between Fisher Park Circle and Fisher Avenue in downtown Greensboro. The GTA Route 3 bus stops at the intersection of Elm Street and Fisher Avenue.
Large crowds are expected and lines will be outdoors. Please be prepared to wait in line in any kind of weather.
The clinic is sponsored by NC Missions of Mercy, Moses Cone Congregational Nurse Program and local dentists. For more information, you can call (336) 832-4899. Volunteers (both dental professionals and community support volunteers) are needed. Community support duties range from unloading and set-up to English/Spanish translation to food service.
