The MS MOM project is a free, 2-day, large-scale dental clinic for low income, uninsured and underserved Mississippi children and adults who cannot afford to pay for dental care. The clinics are staffed by volunteers including dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, laboratory technicians and scores of volunteers from across the state. Additionally, the program enjoys a good relationship with the UMMC School of Dentistry through their student volunteer organizations. Dental students participate as volunteer providers during each clinic and are an important part of the overall program.
The mission of the Mississippi Dental Association Foundation, (MDAF) is to directly address the “Access to Care” problem facing our states’ most underserved. We are 100% supported by the good will of Mississippians, other foundations and corporations. You can help us reach even more Mississippians by volunteering or donating to the MDA Foundation.
