The Mississippi Dental Association, in partnership with University of Mississippi Medical Center, sponsored a Mission of Mercy event in Pearl, MS last April. Nearly 1,300 patients received free dental care during the two day event.
Mission of Mercy is a free dental care program put on by the dental association in each state participating. In Mississippi, 2013 was the second MOM event with the first one happening in July, 2011.
UMMC, including the Schools of Dentistry, Pharmacy, Nursing, and Health Related Professions, worked with MDA to plan, set-up, and staff the event.
