Free dental clinic opens its doors for day two

Posted: Updated:

The Connecticut Mission of Mercy is open for its second day of the free two-day dental clinic in East Lyme.

The mini-clinic is being held at East Lyme High School on Chesterfield Street and is expected to serve nearly 800 patients over the weekend.

Patients will be able to get everything from cleanings and fillings to X-rays and extractions all performed on site.

The clinic will offer dental services to the under- or uninsured in southeast Connecticut.

With more than 600 volunteers and 30 dental chairs, the clinic opened its doors at 6 a.m. and is available on a first-come first-severed basis.

Saturday's clinic reached capacity around 12:30pm, officials said.
