MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) – A healthy, white smile is something a lot of people take for granted, and it's out of reach for many, especially those without dental insurance. One Memphis church is working to change that.

The Deliverance Church in South Memphis has delivered a free dental clinic to the community for the past two years.

Appointments fill up fast and they include everything from cleaning to fillings, even extractions.

Deliverance Church is able to offer the free dental clinic with help from Bellevue Baptist's Christian Mobile Dental Clinic. Deliverance says this event is about helping the South Memphis community that they serve.

"The Deliverance Church has been a staple in the community for 18 years," said Shunta Lee. "We absolutely believe in uplifting the community."

The free dental clinic is only open to people living in the 38109 Memphis zip code and is only for people who don't have dental insurance.

The clinic begins Wednesday, April 9 and goes until Saturday, April 12. It will be open from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Deliverance Church located at 25 West Mallory Avenue.

You must make an appointment to be seen. Call 901-942-1990 to set up an appointment.

If you don't get in this time Deliverance Church is planning another free dental clinic in the fall. That date has not been announced.
