Your opportunity to support the largest free dental clinic in the world.
Helping the Less Fortunate, one smile at a time.
There is nothing like it! Thousands come, standing in snow calf-deep for hours, waiting in quarter-mile lines in 100 degree heat, sleeping outside entrances on below zero nights – all just to receive dental care. These are the underserved – those who cannot, for whatever reason, afford quality dental care.
If you or your organization has been associated with a Mission of Mercy – participated in one – you no doubt have captured the passion. Two days of absolutely free dental care to all who come, leaves most volunteers and patients with a changed perspective on the goodness of mankind.
A charitable event of the magnitude of this size requires approximately $300,000 in financial donations and in-kind contributions. For every dollar donated by our benefactors, FLA-MOM volunteers provide approximately $7 or more in essential dental care and make good use of every donated product or service.
Every day thousands of children miss school because of severe dental pain. Underserved adults head to the Emergency Room to get treatment for dental problems. The need is there and through the generosity of dental professionals, dental technicians, lay volunteers, community leaders and businesses across the country, and the charitable work of dental agencies and organizations throughout America, those needs are being addressed.
Your sponsorship of a Mission of Mercy event will help hundreds without resources receive important oral care. The Florida Dental Association and Florida Dental Health Foundation have joined with the national MOM organization to work to provide care to those most in need.
