The Rhode Island Oral Health Foundation will hold its 5th annual Mission of Mercy free dental clinic on Saturday, June 4 and Sunday June 5 at the Community College of Rhode Island's Flanagan Campus in Lincoln. 

Doors for the clinic open at 6 a.m. each day, patients are seen on a first come, first served basis until the clinic reaches capacity. Services include cleanings, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, x-rays, oral health education, fillings, tooth extractions, some root canal treatments and minor denture repairs. 

The goal of the Mission of Mercy clinic is to address patients' most urgent oral health needs, placing a high priority on patients suffering from infections or pain. The clinic provides free care to Rhode Islanders who do not have access to dental care. 

The premier sponsors of the Mission of Mercy free dental clinic are Delta Dental of Rhode Island and the Community College of Rhode Island.
