The University of Virginia’s College at Wise (Convocation Center)

The Mission of Mercy project will be returning to Wise County for the 18th mission. The MOM pilot project was held in Wise County in 2000. Since that time, 22,564 Southwest Virginia area patients have received free dental care valued at $ 19 million.

There is a profound need for access to affordable dental services in Southwest Virginia. Wise MOM is a 2 ½ day dental clinic conducted each year in July to provide free dental services including cleanings, fillings, oral surgery, x-rays and dentures (prescreened individuals only for dentures).

Wise MOM is made possible by partnerships with the Virginia Dental Association, VCU School of Dentistry and Dental Hygiene, The Health Wagon, Remote Area Medical, Virginia Health Care Foundation and a host of other sponsors.

Vdaf Success Stories


“P.G. grew up in New Jersey, the son of immigrant parents, and in 1944, barely of age, he enlisted in the army, specifically the paratroopers. P.G. was on only his second combat jump when he was captured by German troops and placed briefly in a concentration camp. By the grace of God, this was April,1945, and in approximately one month this camp was liberated by the allies, and P.G. survived.
