More than 100 million people in the United States are without dental insurance. This means that thousands of adults in the Southern Maryland area don’t receive adequate dental care, resulting in a silent epidemic of dental and oral disease. The Southern Maryland Mission of Mercy is working to address those needs by providing professional and caring dental service free of charge.
If you’ve gone without regular cleanings or a dental procedure due to a lack of dental insurance, come to North Point High School in Waldorf, Maryland, on July 29 and 30, to receive necessary care at no cost to you. Doors open at 6:00am on both days and will close when the clinic is full for the day, so you should plan to arrive early.
The Southern Maryland Mission of Mercy performs dental services for adult patients (ages 19 and up only; unfortunately, children cannot be accommodated), including preventative dentistry and cleaning, nutritional counseling, restorative fillings and extractions. All of these services are performed by licensed dentists and hygienists, most of whom are from Maryland.
