The America’s Dentists Care Foundation launched the first Mission of Mercy in Virginia in 2000. Today, MOM events can be found nationwide. More than 14,300 children and adults have received in excess of $8 million in care at WDA Mission of Mercy events since 2009.
This year’s volunteers numbered more than 1,000 and came from 192 Wisconsin communities to donate their time, talents, skills and money to help those in need. They included 155 dentists, along with dental hygienists and assistants, Marquette University School of Dentistry students and faculty, Spanish, Hmong and American Sign Language interpreters and many general volunteers.  Some 6,280 dental procedures were performed during the two-day clinic, including: 422+ X-rays, 1,367 fillings, 992 extractions, 600 cleanings, 504 sealant/fluoride treatments and 32 root canals and therapeutic pulpotomies. Several dental labs worked with volunteer technicians to create 94 full and partial dentures. Patients also received one-on-one oral hygiene instruction.
Dr. Brown, Laura and Jennifer volunteered at the WDA Mission of Mercy in Eau Claire, WI this June.

Brain Teasers….Ever Wonder Why?


Why is “abbreviated” such a long word?


Why do The Alphabet Song and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?


Why aren’t iPhone/iPod/iPad  chargers named Apple Juice?


Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways?


Something to think about!
