We Support Dental Mission of Mercy Clinics and More
The America’s Dentists Care Foundation (ADCF) is a national non-profit organization located in Wichita, Kansas, dedicated to delivering oral health care to the underserved. The ADCF supports dental Mission of Mercy (MOM) clinics and other dental clinics that provide free oral health care to any person who attends. We also support larger-scale holistic medical clinics or smaller-scale clinics for specific populations, such as our country’s veterans.
Since 2003, MOM events have helped more than 254,000 patients and provided $166 million in free oral health care. At a typical two-day MOM event, about 1,400 dental and lay volunteers come together to serve an average of 1,600 patients. The ADCF provides not only equipment and instruments, but also guidance and proven practices necessary to host successful events.
A Virginia-based dentist organized the first dental MOM clinic.
Kansas became the third member of the MOM family.
Nebraska hosted its first event. To keep up with the growing number of MOM events across the country, Kansas and Nebraska began lending out their equipment.
The ADCF was established after volunteer dentists from Kansas and Nebraska realized the need for a foundation that could own, maintain and provide the equipment required to host an event.
In addition to our large-scale trailer, the ADCF launched a 45-unit trailer for states wanting to host smaller-scale clinics.
