2018 Florida Mission of Mercy

2018 Florida Mission of Mercy

What happens when you need a dental cleaning, you're experiencing tooth pain or worse? Most of our readers own dental practices or they are staff members who assist in a dental practice, which should make the entire process of going to the dentist very simple.

For most people who do not work in the world of dentistry, typically you'll make a dental appointment and see your dentist as soon as possible, but what if it wasn't that simple for others? Thankfully, DentalPC partners with life-changing foundations like the Florida Dental Association's Florida Mission of Mercy to help make this process a little easier for some of our Floridians.

What is the Florida Mission of Mercy?

The Florida Mission of Mercy (FLA-MOM) is a two-day clinic which provides free dental care to the under-served and under-insured in Florida – those that would otherwise go without dental care. The Florida Mission of Mercy is a first-come, first-served event with a goal of treating 2,000 patients in two days. Every year, the Florida Mission of Mercy project is held in a different location throughout the state.

Services provided include cleanings, fillings, extractions, pediatric dentistry and limited root canal therapy.

HOW IS DENTALPC INVOLVED?

DentalPC had the honor of sponsoring the Florida Mission of Mercy as the Presenting Benefactor for the third consecutive year. Clay Archer (CEO) and his team of knowledgeable technicians traveled to Ft. Myers for this years big event. It was a busy couple of days in Ft. Myers at the Lee Civic Center last weekend! The Florida Mission of Mercy provided 11,899 procedures to 1,906 patients with a value of more than $1.7 million!
