The ADA is looking for 20 to 40 technicians to join a Mission of Mercy (MOM) charity dental clinic on Sunday, Nov. 3 in New Orleans, immediately following its 2013 Annual Session. Together with America's Dentists Care Foundation and support from the Louisiana and New Orleans Dental Associations, the event aims to serve 1,000 people in need of dental care.
"Volunteers are the backbone of this program, and this year's event is truly unique given it's the first to actively recruit dental professionals from around the country," said Dr. Mark Huberty, Chair, ADA Mission of Mercy. "We will need approximately 750 people to pitch in their time and talent for a great cause that gives back to the public and our profession."
The event runs from 5:30am to 5:30pm CST with full and half-day shifts available. MOM participants do not need to be registered to attend the ADA Annual Session in order to volunteer.
