Next week the North Carolina Missions of Mercy (NCMOM) will be hosting a free dental clinic next Friday and Saturday (September 15th-16th) in Salisbury’s West End Plaza (1935 Jake Alexander Blvd. W.) – about 35 miles Northeast of Charlotte.
The free clinic will provide tooth removal (extractions), tooth fillings (restorations), and teeth cleaning services to any adult with income less than 200% of the Federal Poverty Level Guidelines for the 48 contiguous states and D.C. This means that you must make less than $24,120 for a single person household and less than $32,480 for a 2 person household.
They will not require you to bring proof of income; however, you will be required to sign an income disclosure statement during patient registration.
According to the event’s website, “Entry to the Salisbury MOM Clinic on September 15 & 16, 2017 will be by numbered wrist bands. Wrist bands will be distributed beginning at 3PM and continuing until all are passed out on September 14, 2017 for the Friday Clinic, and beginning at 3PM and continuing until all are passed out on September 15, 2017 for the Saturday Clinic. The wrist bands will be distributed at the old JC Penney’s store in the West End Plaza (previously the Salisbury Mall).”
Currently, NCMOM has enough equipment to set up an 80 chair full dental clinic including digital x-ray, sterilization, and all instrumentation and supplies. The volunteers include dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, laboratory technicians from across the state.
They are anticipating treating at least 800 people during next week’s 2-day clinic.
