Thank You for a Great MOMOM 6

Well folks … we’ve wrapped #momom2017 at Missouri Southern State University in Joplin, where approximately 1,200 underserved adults and children received more than $800,000 worth of free dental care. More than 1,000 dental health professionals and community volunteers spent Friday and Saturday providing care, including 900 cleanings, 800 fillings and 1,600 extractions.

We sincerely thank all our volunteers and generous sponsors and donors who make it happen! Read a full press release here and make sure to check our Facebook and Twitter feeds for great videos and pictures that captured the event. Below is some of the media coverage of MOMOM 6:
