My first step in seeking out free dental care in Mississippi was to contact the Mississippi Dental Association.
I emailed them but didn’t hear back. So the next step was to check out their website.
And like most dental associations, there is a section in the top tabs labeled “For The Public – Resources”, which is where you need to look.
The “Resources for Assistance” tab is the one I was most interested in.
