100 Dentist Chairs Fill Gym on “Mission of Mercy”

by -


A thousand people streamed into the University of Maryland’s gymnasium yesterday where a “Mission of Mercy” began dispensing a million dollars worth of free dental care.

800 dentists and hygienists are volunteering their time during the two-day mobile dental clinic to serve uninsured adults.

Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of DC organized the event along with the Maryland School of Public Health to provide cleanings, fillings, extractions, root canals and oral hygiene education.
