GMOM: Providing Dental Care to Thousands in Need

Georgia dentists from across the state donated their time and expertise in June 2015 to provide dental care to thousands of adults in need through the Georgia Mission of Mercy (GMOM) project, an outreach program of the Georgia Dental Association and its Foundation for Oral Health. Volunteers provided dental services to low- and no-income adults including cleanings, fillings and extractions.

PATIENTS: The GMOM clinic is closed this year. Do not wait until another GMOM event is scheduled to plan for dental care, especially if you are experiencing pain or have a dental infection. There are several existing 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.

GMOM Goals

The goals of the Georgia Mission of Mercy are to…

  • EDUCATE patients and their family members about the importance of optimal oral health and securing a dental home.
  • PROVIDE immediate, free dental care for 2,000 low- and no-income adults, while placing a high priority on patients suffering from dental infections or pain and making referrals to local dentists in their home communities.
  • RAISE AWARENESS of the barriers to available dental treatment for low-income Georgia adults.
  • CHALLENGE patients, policymakers, and dental professionals to work together to improve the oral health of all Georgians.
