Free dental clinic set for June 26-27 in La Crosse; 1,200 patients expected

Organizers say the focus of next weekend's free dental clinic in La Crosse is to get people out of pain.

It will be like a MASH unit at the Mission of Mercy Friday and Saturday.

Around 1,000 volunteers will provide free dental care to an estimated 1,200 people.

Treatment offered will include cleanings, fillings, extractions and some denture work.

Dentists say about 90 chairs will be set up and treatment will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

Mission of Mercy has set up similar programs in 70 cities over the last nine years.
