Pre-health students turn out in record number to support free dental clinic
Helping patients deal with the pain associated with rising health and dental care costs is a lesson pre-health students at Wake Forest won’t soon forget.
That’s why members of the pre-medical honor society Alpha Epsilon Delta (AED), the Pre-Dental Student Association (PDSA) and students at the Wake Forest School of Medicine volunteered at the North Carolina Missions of Mercy (NCMOM) free and portable dental clinic this past weekend.
NCMOM is a grassroots effort that relies entirely on volunteers to provide basic dental services to people in need. More than 100 Wake Forest students volunteered for the two-day event that turned the Dixie Classic Fairgrounds’ Education Building into an 80-chair dental clinic and served hundreds of patients.
