GMOM 2015 will be held June 18-20 at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter in Perry, GA. Our goal is to treat 2,000+ patients in just two days and highlight the oral health needs of citizens of Georgia. At GMOM, over one hundred dental chairs, treatment stations, a sterilization department, patient education, computerized patient registration system, and so much more will be used to create a full scale dental clinic.

WE NEED HUNDREDS OF VOLUNTEERS TO MAKE GMOM A SUCCESS!

Thank you to all volunteers who cared for patients at the 2013 event. Dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, laboratory technicians, community volunteers, and even some individuals who received care at the clinic on the first day gave hours of their time to ensuring that individuals with urgent dental need received attention. Several elected officials, including Governor Nathan Deal, visited the event and saw first hand the impact of not having Medicaid dental benefits provided for adults in Georgia.

This event fulfilled our GMOM goals of not only providing free access to dental care for low- and no-income adults but also educating patients about the importance of obtaining and maintaining optimal oral health and raising awareness of the increasing difficulty low-income Georgia adults face in accessing critical dental care.
