Hundreds of underserved people received free dental services at the Texas Mission of Mercy Mobile Dental Clinic Friday at Texas High School Gymnasium. The clinic, which is a partnership between CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System and the Texas Dental Association Smiles Foundation, continues through today.
There were about 25 dentists and dental assistants and another 150 volunteers from the community working together to make the clinic happen. Services provided include dental cleanings, fillings and extractions.
Approximately 100 patients had been prescreened a few weeks ago so as soon as dentists were set up Friday morning they began seeing those patients.
