Community

Mission of Mercy Clinics

The Doctors Gibbs believe the profession of dentistry has bestowed many blessings to their personal lives. Providing charitable dental services through philanthropic missions such as the Mission of Mercy and the Merci Clinic of New Bern have allowed the Drs. Gibbs to “give back” to the community and patients of Eastern NC.

The Mission of Mercy clinics are free, portable dental clinics in North Carolina that provide dentistry to the impoverished and underserved. All doctors have worked to provide dental services through these dental programs and Dr. Breck Gibbs has been a lead organizer for these events in New Bern.
