See How We Gave 500 People a Reason to Smile Again

We had a fantastic opportunity last month to make a real difference in our community!

Did you know that more than 47% of our Virginia population, an estimated 3.8 million Virginians, do not have dental insurance? Without affordable dental care, men, women, and children often are left to deal with painful and sometimes embarrassing dental problems.

When we can give these individuals a brighter, healthier smile, we give them so much more than clean teeth. Good dental care can mean greater self-confidence and better overall health.

That’s why every year we work with Mission of Mercy to provide high-quality dental care for underserved Virginians. The MOM program operates mobile clinics in strategic locations across the state, providing preventive, restorative, and surgical dental treatments to more than 4,000 low-income individuals each year.

Last month we partnered with 60 other dentists and volunteers to give over 500 people a reason to smile again.
