Clinics Offered Free Dental Services to People in Need

HCC hopes to bring brighter smiles, dental health

WELDON — Those in need of dental care but unable to pay for it can look forward to opening wide and saying thank you when NC MOM rolls into Halifax Community College in February.
The HCC Board of Trustees voted Tuesday meeting to allow the college to be a site for the North Carolina Missions of Mercy (NC MOM) dental clinic.

The NC MOM is a portable free dental program that provides free dental services to adults in financial need with few or no other options through state several times a year.
