The Connecticut Mission of Mercy will host its sixth annual free dental service clinic in Bridgeport on June 7 and 8 to serve the state’s uninsured and underserved population.
For the past five years, Connecticut residents in need of dental care have flocked to Mission of Mercy’s free dental clinic where patients wait hours in line for care. Each year the queue of 1,000 patients per day has filled up before the clinic’s doors have opened at 6 a.m.
The clinic’s co-chairman Dr. Ernie Spira said volunteers come from “all walks of life” and include students from educational programs throughout the state as well as AmeriCorps, a federal community service program. This year more than 1,500 volunteers are expected to work at the Bridgeport clinic.
