LITTLE ROCK, Ark., April 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Arkansans suffering dental pain and discomfort will find needed relief
ArMOM is an annual 2-day free dental clinic started by the Arkansas State Dental Association for underserved Arkansans. All services are provided free of charge by members of the ASDA, assisted by a host of volunteers and sponsors.
Volunteers of all types are needed including hundreds of general volunteers and health professionals such as dentists, hygienists, dental assistants and pharmacists.
Children and adults of all ages are welcome to attend. Doors open at 6:00 a.m. each day for cleanings, fillings and extractions. Services are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. No income or eligibility requirements are necessary.
Since ArMOM started in 2007, over 17,000 patients have been treated in only twenty total clinic days. The number of procedures performed is staggering. With approximately 30,139 extractions of bad teeth and over 12,764 fillings and other restorations, ArMOM has donated an estimated $9,625,775 million worth of free dental care to patients who might otherwise have no hope of receiving care.
