What is a Mission of Mercy (MOM) Dental Day?
Thousands of low-income Virginians can't afford basic dental care or treatment for acute dental problems. In
response to the shortage of dental resources, the Virginia Dental Association Foundation launched the first
Mission of Mercy (MOM) Project in 2000. A MOM Project is a one or two-day dental clinic staffed by volunteer
dental professionals and community members. Each year, MOM Projects provide FREE dental care for
uninsured and underserved Virginians in communities across the state. Thanks to a grant from the CACF
Future Fund, the generosity of CFC donors, Covenant Church, the Virginia Dental Association, the
VCU School of Dentistry and over 350 volunteers, the Charlottesville Free Clinic is hosting a Mission of Mercy
(MOM) Dental Day in Charlottesville this April. .
WHO is eligible?
The Charlottesville MOM Dental Day is for adults, age 18 or older, who need basic dental care and
cannot afford it. You do not need to be a CFC patient to be seen.
WHAT dental services will be available?
Each patient will receive ONE dental treatment, either:
• Extractions (teeth pulled)
• Routine cleaning
Services for dentures, crowns or bridges will not be provided. ALL SERVICES ARE FREE.
