SEPTEMBER 28-29, 2018

Please join us in making a difference as we promote oral health for North Dakota residents!

The North Dakota Dental Association (NDDA) and the North Dakota Dental Foundation (NDDF) are excited to announce a North Dakota Mission of Mercy being held on September 28-29, 2018 in Bismarck. 

The goal of this community event is to provide treatment for patients that have barriers to oral health care. Doors will open at 5:30 am and early arrival is encouraged.

A 50-chair portable dental clinic will transform the floor of the Bismarck Event Center for this event. It’s estimated that 600 dental patients from a wide geographic area will receive free dental care over the 2 days. The clinic will be staffed by nearly 500 volunteers to include dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, translators, and lay volunteers. Free dental care being provided includes cleanings, fillings, extractions, limited treatment for partial dental appliances, and some root canals in front teeth.

Adults and children of all ages who are in reasonably good health and qualify will be welcome until treatment capacity is reached each day. Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. There will be no photo identification, social security number or any other personal documentation required. There is no advanced registration and patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis each day.

New to Mission of Mercy?

Mission of Mercy provides life-changing oral health care to patients and also offers joy to the hundreds of volunteers who participate. In 2016, the North Dakota Dental Association (NDDA) and North Dakota Dental Foundation (NDDF) partnered with the Minnesota Dental Association and Minnesota Dental Foundation to host a Mission of Mercy in Moorhead, MN that provided care to over a 1,000 patients. Watch this video for a sense of the value everyone received over this two day event.
