What is the RI Mission of Mercy? It is two-day FREE dental clinic is held once a year and provides free dental care to the uninsured, underinsured or anyone who cannot access dental care.
At the clinic, patients will initially undergo a health and dental evaluation, and will then be provided with treatment on a first-come, first-served basis, based on their oral health needs.
Services include fillings, x-rays, tooth extractions, root canal treatment on front teeth only, oral health instructions, small denture repairs and a limited number of partial dentures to replace missing front teeth. These are provided by licensed dental professional volunteers.
The clinic is staffed with over 350 dental & medical volunteers and over 225 community volunteers who graciously give their time, talent and clinical expertise to provide FREE dental services to deserving patients. Dr.DiSano and several of his staff are excited to be among the volunteers yet again this year.
The event will be taking place on September 29th and 30th this year at the Providence Community Health Centers Dental Clinic located at 335 R Prairie Avenue. If you are in need of more information to become a potential patient, please click here to visit the Mission of Mercy’s website.
