FREE DENTAL SERVICES!

On September 12 and 13 hundreds of dentists, hygienists, dental students and volunteers will transform the Agri-Plex at the Allentown Fairgrounds into a free dental clinic for underserved residents of the Lehigh Valley. This is the second annual Mission of Mercy in Pennsylvania (MOM-n-PA) dental outreach event . With more than 100 fully equipped dental units, volunteer dentists are hoping to provide as many as 2,000 patient visits during the two-day free dental clinic. X-ray examinations, dental fillings, extractions, root- canal treatments and cleanings will be provided. 

The MOM-n-PA organizers have been working closely with community based groups (in) to recruit underserved patients for the dental clinic. There are no eligibility requirements and no pre-registration. Doors will open at 6 a.m. on September 12. In addition to dental services, every effort will be made to have health agencies available for patients to arrange for aftercare and future dental needs.
