The Mission of Mercy project will be returning to Wise County for the 20th 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-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 MOVED in 2018 and is Returning to UVA College Wise in 2019!

Vdaf Success Stories

Joan-Johnson-with-Dr.-Swanson November-2014


Fredericksburg, Virginia

J.J. needed assistance with getting the dental services she needed to improve her oral and overall health. In July of 2014 she turned to DDS for help. We were able to match her with a volunteer dentist to complete a treatment plan and a few days before Thanksgiving, J.J.’s dentures were delivered! Truly a wonderful gift for J.J. and the volunteer dentist!
