Mission of Mercy (M.O.M. Project)

Each year, in a set-up reminiscent of a M.A.S.H. unit, volunteer dentists, hygienists, assistants, residents, dental students, hygiene students, and administrative workers team up to provide dental care to the underserved of Northern Virginia. Hundreds of patients receive assistance over this two-day event. Volunteers coming away from this project described themselves as feeling, “enriched beyond measure.”
