Oral Health Tobacco Program
December 11-12, 2015 Mission of Mercy Event
The Central Arizona Dental Society (CADS) Foundation will host its fourth Mission of Mercy (MOM) event at the Arizona Fairgrounds in Phoenix, AZ, December 11 & 12, 2015 utilizing 100 portable dental units and 1500 volunteers. Approximately $1,500,000 in free care is expected to be delivered to 2,000 patients. Both children and adults will be seen. Basic dental care includes items such as: fillings, extractions and cleanings. Limited lab work (i.e., stainless-steel crowns for children, treatment partials) will be offered. The program is unable to treat patients with specific medically-compromising conditions (e.g., extremely high blood pressure, high blood sugar, severe disabilities).
