The Mid-Maryland Dental Mission of Mercy & Health Equity Festival is going to take place on September 12-14, 2019, at the University of Maryland Xfinity Center. There will be free consultations for those in need of treatment so get there early to save yourself a spot.

The organizers are asking volunteers to sign up for the event. Please be a part of a monumental free dental clinic. Our goal for this MOM/HEF is to provide 1,000 patients with $2 million worth of pro bono dental care provided by 100s of volunteer dentists, hygienists and community volunteers like you. Check out the website if you would like to sign up to volunteer and help out the community through small acts of kindness, fill out the form and make sure to provide evidence that you are a healthcare worker and even if you are not don’t worry, you can still help out in other sectors of the event.

Local dentists, hygienists and public health advocates, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington along with the University of Maryland School of Public Health Center for Health Equity, and many other community partners are sponsoring the event. Hundreds of volunteers – clinicians and lay people – will make this event a success for those in need of dental procedures, like teeth cleaning, wisdom teeth extractions and even something like full arch dental implants.
