Clinic Day      Saturday, Oct. 1, 2016

We appreciate our volunteers! Shifts are set up in half days. You can choose to work one half day, one whole day or both days. We will also be looking for volunteer groups to help with setup and take down. Volunteers must be 18 years of age but DO NOT have to be dental professionals. There are plenty volunteer opportunities for everyone!

Volunteering for a Mission of Mercy is an incredible experience you will likely never forget! To accomplish our goals, we plan to do the following at LaMOM:
•    Provide free access to dental care and prevention of dental disease while placing a high priority on patients suffering from dental infections or pain.
•    Raise public awareness of the difficulty low-income adults and children face in accessing critical dental care.
•    Create dental health care advocates via the hundreds of lay volunteers participating in our event.

Volunteers are needed in all areas, regardless of dental experience. Volunteers, including dentists, are also able to attend from other states. Out-of-state dentists will be approved by the LA State Board of Dentistry for temporary licensure and should sign up 30 days prior to the event. NOTE: BECAUSE OF THE RECENT FLOODING IN LOUISIANA, THE STATE BOARD HAS AGREED TO EXTEND THE DEADLINE TO CREDENTIAL OUT-OF-STATE DENTISTS AND HYGIENISTS. THE UPDATED DEADLINE IS SEPT. 22. They may also be eligible for up to 3 C.E. hours for their participation. ALL VOLUNTEERS WILL REGISTER ONLINE AT THIS LINK SO THAT WE MAY PREPARE FOOD AND SHIRTS (as well as licensure and liability coverage for doctors and hygienists).  WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCEPT VOLUNTEERS AS WALK-INS.
