Free dental clinic for children and adults

If you are in need for a visit to the dentist, but can not afford it, here is your chance to get some free care. UNCW pre-dental students and dental professionals spent the day setting up for a free clinic that will be held Friday and Saturday. The clinic will provide cleanings, fillings, and extractions to children and adults who can not afford them or do not have dental insurance. The pre-dental students are happy to help those in need, while getting the experience. "You don't get the opportunity much to come and actually assist,” said Cliff Wilson. “You get to learn from the dentists, too, that come out here. So it's good hands on experience you don't usually get." The free dental clinic will be at Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church at 1401 South College Road. Registration begins at 7:00 a.m. both days and patients will be seen on a first come, first served basis.
