annual Oklahoma Mission of Mercy (OkMOM) on February 2-3, 2018, at the Choctaw Event Center in Durant.
This two-day clinic is designed to meet the critical needs of people of all ages by providing donated dental care to as many adults and children as time, volunteers and supplies will allow. OkMOM offers a variety of services such as cleanings, fillings, extractions and limited dental flippers (temporary replacement of front teeth). Treatment is given on a first-come, first-served basis and there is no eligibility or income requirement to seek treatment.
More than 1,500 volunteers are needed to execute this free dental clinic. Volunteers needed include dentists, hygienists, assistants, front office staff, dental technicians, physicians and hundreds of non-healthcare volunteers to help with
everything from patient and volunteer hospitality to language translation.
Since 2010, Oklahoma Mission of Mercy has treated 13,497 patients, totaling more than $10 million in donated dental services. The event is presented by the Oklahoma Dental Association, the Oklahoma Dental Foundation and the Delta Dental of Oklahoma Foundation.
