What Is FLA-MOM?
The Florida Mission of Mercy (FLA-MOM) is a two-day clinic which provides free dental care to the underserved and underinsured in Florida – those that would otherwise go without dental care. The Florida Mission of Mercy is a first-come, first served event with a goal of treating 2,000 patients in two days. Every year, the Florida Mission of Mercy project is held in a different location throughout the state.
