The Kansas Dental Charitable Foundation (KDCF) is pleased to announce that the 2019 Kansas Mission of Mercy (KMOM) free dental clinic will be held on April 26-27 in Pittsburg, KS on the campus of Pittsburg State University.
KMOM 2019 will be the organization’s 18th KMOM project, and the second project hosted in Pittsburg (the first being in 2004). Volunteers at that event treated 2,159 patients, who received donated dental care totaling $981,687.
During each annual two-day event, KMOM volunteers work together to provide patients with free cleanings, fillings, and extractions on a first-come, first-served basis.
KDCF targets its services to low-income individuals and families through local schools, churches, community programs, and service organizations.
To date, KMOM has provided more than $17 million in donated dental care to 29,000 patients.
If you or someone you know could benefit from services provided at KMOM, please visit our Patient Information page to learn more about the event.
Volunteer registration will open online roughly 6 weeks prior to KMOM Pittsburg. Dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, dental office staff, translators, and general volunteers will be needed. Look for hotel information, dinner schedules, parking passes, and more on our Volunteers page.
