The Missouri Mission of Mercy (MOMOM) will be held July 15 & 16, 2022 at the Chaifetz Arena on SLU’s campus. This 100 chair dental clinic will provide cleanings, fillings and extractions for patients ages 5 and up who need dental care and cannot access it easily. We hope to treat 600 people each day. People are seen on a first come, first serve basis. No registration is required. You don’t have to be from Missouri. We will not ask for ID or proof of residence or employment. This is a gift to the community. All treatment is free and provided by licensed professional dentists. This clinic was last held in St Louis in 2014 and will not likely be held here again for the foreseeable future. It is a wonderful opportunity for people who suffer from tooth pain or who need basic dental services to improve their oral health.
