The Missouri Dental Association (MDA) and MDA Foundation’s Missouri Mission of Mercy (MOMOM), a dental clinic that provides free oral healthcare to underserved patients, hosted their seventh annual clinic at Truman State University’s Pershing Arena in Kirksville, Missouri, Aug. 3 and 4.

The clinic provided more than $815,000 in free dental care to approximately 1,200 patients. Services provided included cleanings, fillings, and extractions. Of the more than 800 people who volunteered their time and expertise, more than 100 were A.T. Still University (ATSU) faculty, staff, and students.

“It is phenomenal to be in a huge gymnasium buzzing with people who are there simply to give themselves to help another human being,” says 2018 MOMOM Co-chair Tisha R. Kice-Briggs, DDS, member, ATSU Board of Trustees. “It is such an uplifting event that gives me faith in society.”

Since 2011, MOMOM clinics have provided more than $6 million in free care to more than 9,500 patients. This is the first time the event was held in northeast Missouri.
