If you missed the 2019 FLA-MOM and would like information about dental resources in Orlando and surrounding areas, please click here.

The Florida Dental Association Foundation actively monitored the outbreak of illness caused by a new coronavirus (COVID-19). Out of abundance of caution for patients and volunteers, the April  2020 Florida Mission of Mercy event was postponed.

We are happy to announce the rescheduled FLA-MOM event will be held on:
April 9-10, 2021
Prime F. Osborn III Convention Center in Jacksonville

 For questions, please contact the FDA Foundation at 850-681-3629. 

If you are currently in dental pain, please do NOT wait for FLA-MOM to seek care, as dental pain could be a sign of a serious condition. If dental pain is severe and accompanied by fever or swelling, go to a hospital emergency room immediately.  Click our PDC Guide for a list of community dental clinics and other information.
