MOMOM is Coming Back

The MDA Foundation’s mission is Improving Missouri Smiles. We were created to be a benefit for many. Since 2011 our access to care projects like the MOMOM clinic are designed to provide free basic dental treatment for large numbers of our neighbors who otherwise may not be able to access care. Our skilled and compassionate volunteers enjoy providing needed relief to our patient base in a safe and dignified manner.

The Coronavirus Pandemic has impacted everything including dentistry. Due to recommendations from healthcare authorities, varying local restrictions and an abundance of caution for the health of our patients and volunteers, the MDA Foundation Board decided to postpone all access to care clinics in 2020 and 2021.

We know the need for dental care is great and we wish to help. With a vaccine now in place and considerable time to plan for a safe and productive clinic, we are happy to announce our next MOMOM clinic will be July 15-16, 2022 at Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis. More details for both patients and volunteers will be posted to this site starting in early 2022.

We regret the pandemic has resulted in a long time between clinics. In the meantime please do not put off needed dental care. Oral health is vital to your overall health. You can search for low income clinics in your area at
