MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Dozens of doctors from across the Mid-South will provide free dental services like cleanings, fillings, and extractions this weekend at Bellevue Baptist Church.

The annual Mid-South Mission of Mercy is a two-day, free dental clinic sponsored by the Memphis Dental Society for adults and children who may not have access to or afford dental work.

“We have a large segment of underserved patients. These patients, many times, put life before their dental treatment,” said Steuart Hudsmit of the Mid-South Mission of Mercy.

Dr. Stueart Hudsmith and Dr. Mitchel Godat have been a part of the clinic since 2016, and they say many of the people who come to the event don’t have a primary dentist.

The clinic will open at 6 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. It will last until they reach capacity. Organizers say early arrival is highly suggested since patients are only taken on a first-come, first-serve basis.

There are no eligibility requirements or appointments. Organizers say the goal is to treat 2,000 patients and provide up to a million dollars in free dental care.

“It’s very rewarding for us to be able to use our skills and our very benevolent hearts to help these folks,” said Dr. Hudsmith.
