About Mission of Mercy
The very first Mission of Mercy (MOM) was launched in Virginia in 2000, and today MOM events can be found in about half of the states throughout the country. The events are focused on helping underserved populations of children and adults who are without medically compromising conditions receive dental treatment that they, for whatever reason, cannot obtain. A MOM event is successful with the help of hundreds of volunteers – dental and non-dental – coming together with a common vision in mind.  Since their inception, MOM events have helped over 100,000 patients and provided $50 million in free dental services.

Goals of a MOM event are to:

Provide free dental care, especially to patients with dental infections and/or pain.
Raise awareness of the barriers to dental care faced by low-income adults and children.
state policymakers and dental professionals to work together to improve the oral health of all residents, particularly those low-income patients who have been promised care by the state.
