1000 Patients To Receive Free Dental Services

On May 31st and June 1st , the Rhode Island Mission of Mercy will hold their third annual free dental services event which will provide much needed dental treatments for 1000 patients who have no insurance.

The event will be held on the campus of the Community College of Rhode Island and aims to help patients with urgent dental care who can not afford to pay for treatments.

Last year, 600 dental professionals treated almost 1000 patients to the value of $500,000.

While more Rhode Islanders now have some form of health insurance under Obamacare, dental insurance is still an extra that may be out of reach for the poorest residents.
