Free dental clinic to provide care for 2,000 patients

PHOENIX -

A free dental clinic at the Arizona State Fair grounds is expecting to give care to 2,000 patients on Friday and Saturday.

The Central Arizona Dental Society brought over 1,000 dental professionals together for its first Mission of Mercy event.

The area floor was transformed into a giant clinic with more than 100 portable dental units and 1,500 volunteer dentists, hygienists, lab technicians and assistants.

About $1 million in free care is expected to be given to 2,000 patients who are unable to receive it otherwise. Some people even started lining up for the event on Thursday night.

The clinic will mostly give fillings, extractions and cleanings to children and adults. The clinic operates on a first-come, first serve basis so organizers say to get there early.

Arizona Dental Mission of Mercy event
Dec. 7 and 8, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Veterans Memorial Coliseum
1826 W. McDowell Road
Phoenix, AZ

    Subway bedbug infestations on the rise

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
