NC Dental Society Foundation’s Missions of Mercy (MOM) Clinics

The Foundation facilitates portable free dental clinics conducted over a two-day period for adults from underserved households. Clinics are staffed by volunteer dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, laboratory technicians, health professionals, and general community volunteers from the host city and across the state. The doors will open on Friday and Saturday mornings at 6:00 a.m. Patients will be seen on a first come first serve basis. Treatment will include cleanings, fillings, and extractions only.  Patients should not contact the clinic locations as they only provide the facility.

Give Kids A Smile® (GKAS)

On the first Friday in February, as part of National Children’s Dental Health Month, thousands of dentists will take ​time from their practices to ​help underserved children get the oral health care they need.
