NCDS Foundation

NCDS​F Missions of Mercy (MOM) is a portable free dental program that operates two-day clinics throughout North Carolina.

We can provide an 80-chair full dental clinic, including digital x-ray, sterilization, and all instrumentation and supplies to serve anywhere from 300 to 3,000 patients, depending on the number of chairs set up. 

We need ​YOU. These clinics are staffed by volunteer dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, laboratory technicians, health professionals and general volunteers from across the state.

We try to see as many people as possible, but the demand is overwhelming. Currently, our dentists can only provide one major procedure, such as extractions or fillings, per patient. NCDSF MOM has provided services to more than 65,600 North Carolinians since 2003. We ​want to do more. With your help, we can. 

More clinic dates to be announced for 2019.

In 2018, the Fayetteville MOM clinic provided assistance to 755 patients for a treatment value of $484,608.08.  Over 500 volunteers contributed their time and effort during the three day event.  


We need dentists, hygienists, assistants, laboratory technician and community volunteers. Please click the following links to see how you can best serve your community.
