Thank You to Everyone who made this dental clinic possible!

 

The Connecticut Mission of Mercy (CTMOM) is a large-scale dental clinic where dental treatment is provided at no cost to individuals who cannot afford dental care.

If you are suffering from severe dental pain and the pain is accompanied by a fever or pronounced swelling, DO NOT WAIT!  You should seek care at a local hospital emergency room immediately

You can also contact your local Community Health Center. They will provide you with dental services on a sliding scale basis. Click here to find a Community Health Center in your area.
