Dentists recommend having your teeth cleaned twice a year, but some people can't. Now one North Carolina group is helping to change that. North Carolina Missions of Mercy is helping people who cannot afford to go to the dentist, have a beautiful smile. At the Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church on South College road you can get free dental care. Over 100 volunteers and dentists are providing free services to the underserved population. The dentists are offering extractions, fillings and cleanings. If you go expect long lines, the clinic is operating on a first come first serve basis. Bob Plage, the Clinic Director Missions of Mercy says, "If you have pain or some bad teeth, please come by. We would like to see you, and of course, we think that seeing a dentist regularly to make sure your mouth is healthy is a good indication of what the rest of the body's like." To qualify for the free dental care, you need to bring proof of income to show volunteers that you are truly in need of these free services. If you want to volunteer or if you need to get your teeth healthy. The clinic is open again tomorrow from 8 to 5.
