NC BAPTIST MEN’S DENTAL CLINIC RETURNS TO GBC

The NC Baptist Men’s dental clinic returned to Guilford Baptist Church for the 10th year on
September 28 &29, 2018 and brought many blessings to the 65 dental patients who were seen.
The goal of this ministry is to treat their spiritual and physical needs. During this 2 day clinic, we
had 22 dental providers who cared for patients with cleanings, fillings, and extractions. Three
pre-dental students shadowed providers during the clinics. All patients (and even those we
turned away) received dental hygiene kits with toothbrushes, tooth paste, dental floss,
salvation tracts, and follow up care dental information. 69 New Testament Bibles were given
out to patients as they left. This FREE clinic serves people who do not have dental insurance
regardless of their job status.

During the clinic, six registered nurses offered diabetic A1C screening to all patients. Seven
patients were screened and 4 of those patients were identified as pre-diabetics.
A special thanks to all GBC volunteer missionaries who assisted with the clinics. John Bell with
“Touch a Life Photography” provided pictures of our event.

This ministry began in 1989 to roll to all 100 counties in North Carolina and will go to any
organization that will sponsor them. To learn more about this ministry, go to the NC Baptist

NC Baptist Men

The Dental Clinic Ministry of NC Baptist Men provides a means for free dental care to be offered to residents of North Carolina.  Approximately 3,500 people are treated annually through this ministry in over 100 locations throughout the state.  The dental clinics are sponsored by Baptist associations, local churches or civic organizations.  This ministry offers Christians the opportunity to provide physical and spiritual care to people in need.  Patients targeted through this ministry include people without insurance, the impoverished, Hispanic and other ethnic groups, the homeless, the elderly and more. Dental treatments include fillings, extractions, and hygiene care only.  Local dentists, dental assistants, and hygienists are recruited to volunteer their services at the clinics.  The dental ministry is funded by donations from individuals and groups who see this ministry as a way to reach people for Christ.
