To me, dental health is the key to good health. Our mouths are the gateway to our entire body. Sadly, a lot of people can't afford dental care. That's where the Connecticut Foundation for Dental Health can help.

The Danbury area was fortunate enough to host free dental clinics twice -- once in 2012 and again in 2015. This year, the annual clinic will be in New Haven and all are welcome on a first-come, first-served basis. Here are the details:

The Connecticut Mission of Mercy Free Dental Clinic will be in New Haven on April 7 and 8 at the Floyd Little Athletic Center in New Haven, located at 480 Sherman Parkway. Make note of the fact that the clinic doors open both Friday and Saturday at 6 AM, and again it's first-come, first-served.

Answers to the following questions can all be answered by clicking on Who should come to the clinics? What services are offered? What services are NOT offered? What to expect? and What to bring?

Such amazing work the mission does. The Connecticut Mission of Mercy Free Dental Clinic posted it's final report for the 2015 Danbury clinic. Nearly 2,000 people attended, and the first person to be taken had arrived to wait in line 24 hours in advance! The report is incredibly moving, so take a moment to check it out.

Please share this information with anyone you know that is in need.
