The Nebraska Mission of Mercy dental event is returning to Omaha this month. The program offers free dental care to those who are uninsured, underinsured or who have difficulty getting to the dentist.
The two-day dental care event is set for March 29 and 30 at Brownell Talbot School, 400 N. Happy Hollow Blvd. Sessions run from 5:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
Organizers hope to donate $1 million worth of dental care. They expect about 800 volunteers to help, which includes about 250 dentists.
Patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. They will be treated for their most pressing issue. If they would like more work done, they can get back in line after a first treatment.
Pediatric dental care also will be offered. Children must be accompanied by a parent.
Patients aren’t required to bring any paperwork with them.
