BURLINGTON, N.C. -- A church in Alamance County teamed up with local dentists and the Baptist Men's Association for a free dental clinic on Saturday.
The event was held at the Holly Hill Baptist Church in Burlington. Organizers say 28 patients signed up to have serious dental needs corrected. One patient had nine teeth removed and another had severe abscesses that had been affecting his general health. Organizers say many of the patients had no alternatives to the free clinic. Some had recently lost their jobs and/or had no insurance.
The church plans to host the event again next year. The Baptist Men's dental bus travels across the state, partnering with churches to help local communities.
