Mission of Mercy History
The very first Mission of Mercy (MOM) was launched in Virginia in 2000, and today MOM events can be found nationwide. The events are focused on helping underserved populations of children and adults 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 200,000 patients and provided over $123 million in free dental services.
The MDA and Minnesota Dental Foundation Mission of Mercy dental program has provided 31,237 dental procedures worth $4,107,315 in donated dental services and treatment through 6,644 patient visits since 2012. Major financial and in-kind support is critical to the success of Mission of Mercy and Delta Dental of Minnesota Foundation is the signature sponsor.

Thank you so much for doing this. We both have had dental issues and no way to fix them. We were worried we would become sick from infection. This event made it possible to fix most of our problems and gave us ideas on how to fix other teeth problems.
