ADA seeks 750 volunteers for Mission of Mercy event in New Orleans

CHICAGO, Aug. 07, 2013 — Volunteers are encouraged to register for the American Dental Association (ADA) Mission of Mercy (MOM) charity dental clinic scheduled to take place Sunday, Nov. 3, in New Orleans, the site of the ADA’s 2013 Annual Session and World Marketplace Exhibition. Together with America's Dentists Care Foundation and support from the Louisiana and New Orleans Dental Associations, the event aims to serve 1,000 people in need of dental care.

Organizers hope to attract 750 dentists, their team members, clerical and support staff, students, laboratory technicians and office specialists as well as family members older than 18 to administer and support the dental clinic. The children’s portion of the MOM event will be sponsored by CareCredit in tandem with Give Kids A Smile, the ADA’s signature access to care program for underserved children.

This year's ADA MOM in New Orleans will run from 5:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Central Standard Time on Nov. 3 with full and half day volunteer shifts available. At this time, the ADA asks that MOM volunteers keep event details private so attendance can be managed through local promotional efforts. MOM participants do not need to be registered for the ADA Annual Session to volunteer. For more information or to register as a volunteer, visit ADA.org/MOM.
 
2013 Annual Session Registration is Open
Registration is open for the ADA’s 154th Annual Session and World Marketplace Exhibition, which is slated for Oct. 31 to Nov. 3 in New Orleans.
