FREE DENTAL CLINIC

Got cavities? Get free dental care. Anyone willing to get up before 5am and get in line next Friday, April 17th and Saturday, April 18th can have their mouths checked out, free of charge.
About 900 volunteer dentists, dental hygenists, doctors, and nurses will be on hand for the second annual Mission of Mercy at the New Haven Field House at 480 Sherman Parkway in New Haven. Various sponsors are helping cover the cost for patients. Last year's event in Tolland had a thousand people receiving $500,000 worth of care. This year, dentists are expecting an even larger crowd due to the poor economy and people losing, or not having dental insurance.
Not only will cavities be filled, but dentists will also be giving x-rays, doing root canals, cleanings, and taking out teeth. Dental hygiene students from the University of New Haven will also be on hand to provide education about the importance of keeping teeth healthy.
It's enough to make you smile! To see my Fox Focus report on the Mission of Mercy, tune in Monday night, April 13th to the Fox 61 News at Ten.
