Free And Low-Cost Dental Care

The North Carolina Dental Society provides free dental clinics statewide as well as partnering with a number of services and organizations to bring affordable dental care to the entire state.

Our NC Missions of Mercy (NCMOM) clinics provide cleanings, fillings and extractions by volunteer dentists at several events statewide using our mobile dental facilities. On the first Friday of February each year North Carolina dentists participate in the Give Kids A Smile! program, which provides free oral health care services to pre-identified and pre-screened low-income children from across the country.  Last of all, the North Carolina Public Health has Local Safety Net Dental Clinics in most counties for resource needs.
