Minnesota Mission of Mercy
Touching Lives One Smile at a Time
On July 25th and July 26th, 2014, the Minnesota Dental Association and the Minnesota Dental Foundation hosted its third Mission of Mercy event in Mankato, resulting in over 1,500 patient visits.
Once again, the Verizon Wireless Center in Mankato was transformed into a massive temporary dental clinic where dental professionals from across the state, along with lay community and corporate volunteers, worked tirelessly for two days to deliver over $900,000 in free dental care to patients who face insurmountable barriers to dental care.
The weekend was filled with remarkable examples of patients who have difficulty obtaining dental care on a daily basis. These patients stood in line for hours to receive free treatment. The Strait Smiles staff had the pleasure of serving and speaking with so many wonderful people over the course of that weekend. The patients were greatly impressed by the commitment and optimism of the volunteers who all worked together with flexibility and compassion.
