The 2019 Mid Maryland Mission of Mercy and Health Equity Festival will be held on September 13 and September 14 at the UMD Xfinity Center. This free adult dental care clinic and health equity festival is a collaborative effort by the Maryland Center for Health Equity, Catholic Charities of Washington and the dental and health care community to provide free emergency dental care to the poor and underserved.
In addition to providing free dental services to adult patients in need, the event will also provide a number of health screenings and services, including blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol checks, flu shots, vision exams, HIV screenings and one-on-one consultations with attorneys, nutritionists and counselors.
Dental services will be provided by licensed dentists and hygienists, and include:
- Endontics/root canals
- Restorative fillings
