MOMOM 5 Delivers!

Smiles were changed forever at MOMOM 5 thanks to the collective efforts of many who volunteered their time to help their neighbor in need. The 2 day free dental clinic held August 12-13 at the Silverstein Eye Centers Arena in Independence saw the following results.

  • 1,513 patients treated
  • $885,659 provided in free care
  • 1,100+ volunteers including 200+ dentists as well as hygienists, assistants, medical staff, technicians, and lay people.

This is organized dentistry at its best. The feedback from patients and volunteers has been overwhelmingly positive. Please share your story or photos with us at  A big thank you to all those who worked tirelessly to make this year’s clinic a success.
