Group To Offer Free Dental Clinic In Oklahoma City

Posted: Updated:

Staff and Wire Reports

OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Oklahoma Dental Association is participating in a two-day free dental clinic in downtown Oklahoma City in February.

Association President Tamara Berg said Tuesday that what is dubbed as the Oklahoma Mission of Mercy is expected to attract 2,000 patients, who will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. The event is set for Feb. 4-5 at the Cox Convention Center.

Berg said a similar event last year in Tulsa drew about 1,800 patients. This year's event is being funded by a $150,000 grant from the Delta Dental of Oklahoma Oral Health Foundation, which also helped sponsor the 2010 event.

Organizers say that during the past eight years, almost 70,000 patients across the U.S. have received free dental care through the Mission of Mercy program.
