In Southwest Virginia as well as the surrounding counties of Southwestern West Virginia and Southeastern Kentucky, there is a profound need for access to affordable dental services for low-income, uninsured, and underserved adults. For the past eleven years, the Buchanan County Mission of Mercy project has provided $3.8 million in free dental services to 4,720 adults and children. The Buchanan County Mission of Mercy Project is conducted one weekend each year and uses portable dental equipment for cleanings, x-rays, oral surgery, and fillings.
The Grundy Mission of Mercy is brought to Buchanan County through a partnership with the Virginia Dental Association, VCU School of Dentistry, Remote Area Medical Expedition and many other sponsors which have allowed this clinic to continue for the 11th year.
