EASTERN SHORE MISSION OF MERCY
Information for Patients
Nothing is more important than a heathy mouth.
Let us help you take a step in the right direction when it comes to your oral health.
Due to high demand for services, it is possible potential patients will wait in line for several hours. Patients should eat protein, stay hydrated, and take all necessary medications prior to and waiting for admittance to the clinic.
WE CAN HELP!
WHAT SERVICES DO WE PROVIDE?
Dental services for adult patients include:
Preventive dentistry and cleaning
We are here to give everyone possible that little extra help in dealing with day to day issues by hopefully relieving some underlying dental issues. We are to help any adult, age 18 and over. No one is turned away for non-medical reasons. We may not be able to fix every dental problem everyone presented to us; however, to provide some immediate treatment to alleviate immediate needs is a step in the right direction.
DUE TO SUCH A DEMAND FOR SERVICES AND AN EXPECTED LARGE TURNOUT OF POTENTIAL PATIENTS FOR THE EVENT, WE HAVE TO LIMIT TREATMENT TO ONE SPECIFIC PROBLEM OR COMPLAINT.
PLEASE NOTE, THERE ARE MEDICAL CONDITIONS THAT WILL PREVENT SOME PEOPLE FROM RECEIVING TREATMENT.
WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?
Health of the oral cavity is tied very closely to a person’s general health.
A person’s dental problems can have a wide-ranging impact on day to day life as well. Mentally, poor oral health can affect one’s self confidence, thus affecting every aspect of their social life. Physically, the pain from dental infection and decay can have a devastating effect on one’s daily functions, whether it is working, caring for loved ones, or just daily tasks.
It’s hard enough to go through the day without having to worry about low self-esteem, pain, or infection. If we can help anyone by improving their oral health, then we have had a positive impact on that person that will hopefully have a positive impact on their life.
