Three hundred tickets are still left for Saturday’s free dental clinic at the RBC Center in Raleigh.
The North Carolina Dental Society is holding the event, which offers examinations, x-rays, cleanings, restorations and extractions for anyone over the age of 18 with an income of less than $27,225 per year.
Up to 120 volunteer dentists and dental hygienists are staffing 80 dental chairs until 5 p.m. Friday and from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
Patients are being treated on a first-come, first-served basis, with patient registration starting at 6 a.m.
Even people who have tickets for Saturday need to be lined up by 4:30 a.m.
All of Friday’s tickets had been distributed by 11 a.m., and organizers said they expect to treat 400 people by the end of the day.
