A good smile has the power within it to change the world. A smile can work magic...offer encouragement...calm fears...and heal pain. But there are a lot of folks who won't smile-cannot smile-because they are in pain.
Enter Missouri Mission of Mercy. This event, on May 3rd and 4th at the Show Me Center, is a large scale dental clinic geared to provide service free of charge to those who have not been able to provide it for themselves. It doesn't matter where you're from, Mercy knows know borders.
Since 2000, these Mission of Mercy events have touched 100,000 patients across the country and provided millions of dollars in free dental care. Volunteer dentists from far and near will be in Cape Girardeau to help provide these free services, and volunteers are still needed.
If you need help, or would like to offer help, log on to the MOMOM website (or call 573-275-6944) to get all the details. Folks, a single smile has the power within it to change the world. If you see someone without one...give them yours.
