Hundreds of people lined up this past Friday morning, some as early as 1 AM, outside North Point High School in Waldorf for a chance to receive dental services – for free. Sponsored in part by UM Charles Regional Medical Center, Southern Maryland’s Mission of Mercy employed the volunteer services of more than 100 dentists and oral surgeons, 20 hygienists and over 400 more volunteers to provide dental services to 700 people in need.
Those in attendance received services such as cleanings, fillings, extractions, and even root canals – all from licensed professionals and free of charge.
Here are a few photos of this weekend’s event and WJLA’s media coverage.
Mission of Mercy events are held twice a year in Southern Maryland. For information on the next clinic dates, stay tuned to http://www.southernmdmom.org/.
A huge thank you to all the volunteers who made this Mission of Mercy dental clinic such a
tremendous success. UM Charles Regional was thrilled to play a part in such a needed and worthwhile event!
