The students, who worked in shifts that started at 5 a.m. and ended at 7 p.m. on Oct. 24 and 25, participated in patient education, sterilization, infection control and patient care. They also served as translators for individuals who did not speak English. At the Mission of Mercy event, dental professionals and community volunteers helped provide dental care for underserved populations.

“I was extremely proud of these students and their willingness to give to the community,” said Melanie Upshaw, director of CNM’s Dental Assisting Program.
