Mission of Mercy

You Are Here: Home > District Events > Mission of Mercy

The 2014 Mission of Mercy (MoM) was an unparalleled success, treating a thousand patients through the participation of hundreds of volunteer dental professionals and laypeople along with many dental industry sponsors.   For MoM statistics, please visit:  http://www.nysdentalfoundation.org/mom.html

An outgrowth of MoM, the NYSDA/Foundation Dental Demonstration Project, is one in which volunteer dentists provide dental treatment to people in need of such care within Article 28 facilities and Federally Qualified Health Centers.  It also raises awareness of the importance of oral health to overall health, and, in the process, enrolls new patients into ongoing treatment in a dental home, thus eliminating the need for these patients to seek emergency room care for dentistry. Several successful projects took place in New York State in 2016.
