In Service to Our Community
The Medical Dental Unit had a great day on February 28 at the Brentwood campus. A total of 47 patients were cared for, including 33 dental patients and a total of 48 dental extractions. An estimated $13,338 worth of dental services were provided at no charge to the patients.
This event at the Brentwood campus was a first in many ways. For the first time, the team set up and used portable dental chairs in Wilson Hall. They also partnered with Mercy Community Healthcare for the first time. And this was the first event that they didn’t pre-schedule patients for dental extractions. Even with so many “firsts” that day, everything went smoothly.
Lives Changed Forever
The best news from this MDU event is that four people gave their lives to Christ, and several others heard the gospel for the first time. One volunteer, a Chinese pre-med student, even had the opportunity to share the gospel in both Chinese & English.
The lives of these four people have been changed forever. That is why the Medical Dental Unit exists—to provide free, limited medical and dental care to those in need for the purpose of sharing the gospel.
