I received the following email from Dr. Sarah Pless from the Atlantic Dental Group and wanted to pass it along to get word out to anyone who can help.
I apologize for the redundancy of this message if you’ve already seen it via FB/church/etc, but we could use your help at a wonderful event next weekend! Â The North Carolina Missions of Mercy (MOM) Dental Clinic is once again coming to Wilmington. This 2-day free clinic serves low income families in the greater Wilmington area. In 2011, the MOM event treated over 600 patients. Â The clinic is entirely staffed by volunteers, both dental and non-dentalâ€”and this is where we need your help!
The event will be held at the Schwartz Center on the downtown campus of Cape Fear Community College on April 27-28. Â We need 300 volunteers to make this project a success, and there are many ways in which YOU can volunteer. For either a morning or afternoon shift, you can help setup or breakdown the actual clinic, register patients, translate, help with food service, take health histories, direct trafficâ€”we got something for everybody and WE NEED YOU!
Itâ€™s very easy to signup online at the NC Dental Society website.Â Go toÂ www.ncdental.org, click on â€œNCMOMâ€ near the top, and then click on â€œVolunteer â€“ Community Supportâ€.Â There is a brief description of the various volunteer duties.
Please call or email if you have any questions,
