Special Photo ---- Rockdale County dentists, from left, Dr. Wayne Kerr, Dr. Doug Torbush, and Dr. Ron Cavola volunteered their services for the Georgia Mission of Mercy, a two-day, free dental clinic hosted by the Georgia Dental Association and its Foundation for Oral Health. The GMOM provided free dental services to more than 1,600 patients during the event at the North Atlanta Trade Center in Norcross. The dentists were among the approximately 900 dentists, hygienists, dental assistants and dental laboratory technicians who donated more than $1.5 million in dental care to patients who would normally not receive this treatment due to Georgia's lacking dental safety net for dental services. To maximize the number of patients served each day, the clinic opened at 5 a.m. both days and completed patient treatment at 6:30 p.m.
