Mission Statement

The Mission of the Minnesota Dental Foundation is to:

  • Initiate and support programs that provide dental services to underserved populations and communities;
  • Encourage and support volunteerism within the profession; and
  • Promote careers in dentistry, especially in underserved areas.


Description

The Minnesota Dental Association, in conjunction with the Minnesota Dental Foundation, will host its first Minnesota Mission of Mercy (MnMOM) event on August 17-18, 2012, in Mankato, Minnesota.

These events, initiated in 2000 and currently active in 18 states, are projects which provide free dental care to anyone who is unable to access care.

A large, temporary dental clinic is erected to provide treatment over a two-day period in areas of the state where individuals are not able to easily access oral health care. It provides dental treatment to children and adults in need, regardless of their ability to pay. It is expected to see about 2,000 patients in the 2-day event and hoping to give $1 million in care to those patients.
