The Connecticut Mini Mission of Mercy (CTMiniMOM) is a small-scale dental clinic where dental treatment is provided at no cost to individuals who cannot afford dental care, in a targeted area of the state. Approximately 350 patients per day will be treated during this clinic.

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
