GMOM: Helping the Less Fortunate

The Georgia Mission of Mercy (GMOM) event is a free, two-day dental clinic for low- and no-income adults in Georgia. This is a first-come, first-serve event with a goal of treating 2,000 patients in two days. The next GMOM event will be held in 2015 outside of the Metro Atlanta area. More information will be posted soon.

PATIENTS: Do NOT wait for the next GMOM event to seek dental services, especially if you are experiencing pain or a dental infection. There are several permanent charitable dental clinics in Georgia that may be able to provide services to individuals in need. To review a list of these clinics, please CLICK HERE.

If you cannot open the PDF, email willich@gadental.org to request that a clinic list be sent to you.

  • EDUCATE patients and family members in attendance about the importance of obtaining and maintaining optimal oral health.
  • RAISE AWARENESS of the increasing difficulty low-income Georgia adults face in accessing critical dental care.
