Free dental clinic returns to Rhode Island

For five years, the Rhode
Island Mission of Mercy held a free dental clinic in the Ocean State, offering vital dentistry for those who otherwise would not be able to afford it. "In some cases, it was
maybe the only dental care that they really received so and of course one of our biggest aims is to keep these people out of the emergency room," said Dr. Jeffrey Dodge of
the RI Oral Health Foundation, which holds the clinic. However, last year the Foundation found itself in its own emergency when CCRI told the organization it could no longer host
the clinic at the school's dental facilities at its Lincoln Campus.
