According to the North Dakota Dental Association and the North Dakota Dental Foundation, the Bismarck Event Center will host a Mission of Mercy free dental clinic in North Dakota next Friday and Saturday.
Volunteers will provide free dental care to those in need on a first come, first served basis. Doors open at 5:30 am each day. Patients are encouraged to arrive early. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian. Masks are mandatory.
Nearly 400 volunteers, including more than 90 dentists, will equip the clinic with 40 chairs. Services will include cleanings, fillings, root canals on the front teeth, temporary partial dentures (in limited numbers), extractions, oral health education, fluoride treatments, x-rays and sealants .
âDental professionals understand that oral health is an important part of overall health and are motivated to make a difference in people’s lives,â said North Dakota Mission of Mercy Chairman Brent Holman . âEvents like the Mission of Mercy give us the opportunity to do just that – provide care to people who face barriers to regular oral health care. “
Over 150 organizations and individuals donated cash and in-kind to support Mission of Mercy. For more information, visit https://ndmom.org/.
