About Mission of Mercy
Try to visualize the typical Mission of Mercy (MOM) patient. Usually the first thing that comes to mind is a homeless person or family, someone on government assistance, unable to get needed dental care for obvious reasons. However, that first mental picture can’t be any further from the truth. The people out there in need include the average person mingling and socializing among us. They are friends, coworkers, people we interact with on a daily basis. They could be your grandparent, mother, father, sibling, or any other relative. With the tough economic times we are in, it could be anyone. It could be you.
More than 100 million people in the United States are without dental insurance. On the Eastern Shore there are thousands of adults that don’t receive adequate or even basic needed dental care, resulting in a silent epidemic of dental and oral disease.
