MOMOM, or Missouri Mission of Mercy, is a two-day event of charitable dentistry. This event’s first appearance in Missouri was in Springfield in 2011 and has since been held in Cape Girardeau and St. Louis. The next one will be in Columbia on July 31st and August 1st, 2015, at Hearnes Center on the University of Missouri campus. As a board member of the Missouri Dental Association Foundation and a Columbia dentist, I’ll be involved with many others in the planning of the event and in the treatment of thousands of Missouri residents in need of care. We’ll need hundreds of volunteers, dentists, and non-dentists, to make this a success. Mark your calendar now and check out There is to come over the next few months!
