The NC Dental Society Foundation is rescheduling the March 27-28, 2020 Missions of Mercy (MOM) clinic in High Point out of abundance of caution due to COVID-19. The NCDS is mindful of COVID-19’s risk especially to vulnerable populations and want to limit potential exposure. A revised date has been identified for March 19th-20th, 2021.
Cooke Capital is proud to help sponsor the 2020 NCDS Foundation Missions of Mercy (MOM) free adult dental clinic in High Point which was originally scheduled for March 27-28. This event will be held at First Baptist Church of High Point; however, due to the COVID-19 global pandemic it has been rescheduled to next year on March 19-20, 2021.
According to the NCDS website, The Foundation is postponing the remainder of its Missions of Mercy (MOM) clinics this year. "We are mindful of COVID-19’s risk, especially to vulnerable populations, and want to limit potential exposure. So, in an abundance of caution and in accordance with Governor Cooper’s Safer At Home recommendation, which limits large gatherings, the Foundation is postponing its Gastonia and High Point MOM clinics, originally scheduled for 2020. We’re happy to share the Foundation’s High Point MOM clinic has been rescheduled for March 19-20, 2021. Please visit ncdentalfoundation.org for updates."
The portable free dental clinic is conducted over a two-day period, offering complimentary care for adults from underserved households. The program rotates throughout the state, each requiring a host community. In 2019, Cooke Capital helped to support the Eastern North Carolina program in New Bern. The clinic is staffed by volunteer dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, lab techs, health professionals and community volunteers.
We look forward to supporting the Piedmont Triad program kicking off early in the year in High Point which will be directed by the local host Dr. L’Tanya Bailey. Wishing all those participating in the clinic the best of luck.
