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.

I am a 26 year old mom of three and I cannot afford dental insurance and I need to have all my teeth extracted and dentures put in. I would love to get help with my problem. thank you

You're a little late...

to the dental dance Shana...this story ran in April of last year.

Last year??

This story was done in 2009.

Anyway, Shana would be better served looking into some birth control. But then I bet that "pretty" smile she has if she needs all her teeth pulled is currently doing the trick.

Any qualifications?

I am a resident of Brunswick County rather than New Hanover County, can I still qualify for the help with dental problems? If so, do I need to bring anything for registration process?
