Mission of Mercy A Great Success!
The North Dakota Mission of Mercy was held September 28-29, 2018, at the Bismarck Event Center in Bismarck, ND. The North Dakota Dental Association and the North Dakota Dental Foundation were proud to sponsor North Dakota’s first Mission of Mercy which offered a 45 chair free dental clinic. Thanks to the hundreds of volunteers and donors that worked hard to make the event a great success. 912 patients received $565,000 of donated care. 110 dentists, 105 dental assistants, 48 dental hygienists volunteered, and 570 total volunteers registered for the event.
The event provided free care to anyone in need on a first-come, first-served basis. Care provided included fillings, extractions, cleanings, limited treatment for partial denture appliances, and some root canals on front teeth. More than 70 organizations and individuals provided cash or in-kind donations.
A special thank you to all of our volunteers and supporters! You helped change the lives of 912 patients!
