Mission of Mercy Project Brings Free Dental Care to Hampton Roads


Atlantic Dental Care is hosting a free dental clinic in Portsmouth all day Saturday, April 28.

In partnership with the Virginia Dental Association, VDA Foundation and the VCU School of Dentistry, the dentists at the event will offer free x-rays, cleanings, fillings, extractions and some other limited procedures. This is the third Mission of Mercy (MOM) Project in Hampton Roads.

According to Atlantic Dental Care, more than 47 percent of Virginians don’t have dental insurance. Organizers expected between 500 and 600 people to take advantage of this great opportunity. The event begins at 7 a.m. and runs until 5 p.m., but keep in mind that care is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Come prepared to wait in line. Also important to note is this is for adults only.

The event is being held at I.C. Norcom High School located at 1801 London Boulevard.
