Mission of Mercy – Here in Mankato!

The Minnesota Dental Association and the Minnesota Dental Foundation are returning to Mankato’s Verizon Wireless Center this Friday and Saturday, July 25 and 26 for the annual Mission of Mercy.  The mobile dental clinics were started in 2000, with the first one in the state coming to Mankato in 2012.  After heading to Bemidji in 2013, the clinic is back in Mankato this summer.

A thousand or so volunteers will help an estimated 2,000 patients receive free care during the two-day clinic in Mankato. The turnout by volunteers in 2012 was impressive with the smooth setup, operation and tear-down of the clinic that provided $1.3 million in free care.  I will be working at the clinic, as will both of my sons and other members of the Commerce Drive Dental team.

For anyone interested in helping, there is a job for everyone!  Visit www.mndental.org to register as a volunteer.  No doubt Mankato will do the state proud once again by pulling off an impressive feat that will bring lots of smiles to those who not only receive, but also to those who give for the sake of dental health.
