Free Dental Care Offered at Florida Mission of Mercy

The Florida Dental Association Foundation is hosting the Florida Mission of Mercy Friday, March 24 and Saturday, March 25 in Pensacola, a two-day clinic that provides dental care at no cost to the underserved and uninsured in Florida. The event will take place from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Woodham Middle School, located at 150 E. Burgess Road.

This is a first-come, first-served event, and patients are encouraged to arrive early. No appointments will be taken. The goal of the event is to treat 2,000 patients and have a positive impact on the Pensacola community by providing important access to dental care for those who would otherwise go without. Treatments offered at the FLA-MOM include cleanings, fillings, extractions, limited root canal therapy and pediatric dentistry.

Up to 300 veterans with ID will be pre-screened Thursday, March 23 beginning at 2 p.m. Those approved must commit to returning at 5 a.m. Friday for treatment and will receive preferential treatment.
