The Mission of Mercy project will be returning to Wise County for the 21 mission July 19-20, 2022. The MOM pilot project was held in Wise County in 2000. Since that time, 24,423 Southwest Virginia area patients have received free dental care valued at $21.1 million.

There is a profound need for access to affordable dental services in Southwest Virginia. Wise MOM is a 2-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, Virginia Health Care Foundation and a host of other sponsors.

Wise MOM is Returning to UVA College Wise in 2024!
