It seemed to spring up overnight, this year at the Sanford Center in Bemidji. But of course it didn’t. It took many hundreds of volunteers and many thousands of dollars to present the second Minnesota Mission of Mercy. From the line outside to the connectivity on the floor to the smiles that went out the door, the participants, from the patients to the dentists and everyone in between, found the ways and means to break down barriers and embrace the care that was needed. The dental community of our state stood shoulder to shoulder (at times literally) to demonstrate again their commitment to the oral health of the public.
