Posted February 25, 2009 2:13 p.m. EST

— The UNC Dentistry School offers low-cost services to children, denture wearers and those in need of orthodontic treatment.

Appointments for children or denture wearers can be made by calling 919-966-6474. Appointment for orthodontic care through the Graduate Orthodontic Clinic can be made at 919-966-4428.

In order to balance the volume of requests, the school accepts applications for all other care and awards appointments via lottery.

The N.C. Dental Society and N.C. Missions of Mercy sponsor free dental clinics across the state. The next one is scheduled for March 6-7 in Burlington. Visit their site for the complete schedule.
