Dental services for adult patients include preventive dentistry and cleaning, nutritional counselling, restorative fillings, and extractions.
All dental services are provided by licensed dentists and hygienists, mostly from Maryland.
Mission of Mercy was launched by Virginia Dental Health Foundation in 2000. Over 50 MOM projects are hosted in Virginia, and are now spreading elsewhere.
The first local MOM for Southern Maryland was held in June 2012 at Chopticon High School in St. Mary’s County, and now there are a number of Missions throughout Maryland.
