What a great experience to be able to participate in this great event! This was my first year volunteering and I am already looking forward to next year. Our dental staff has been a part of this for at least 4 years!

AZ MOM is held at the AZ state fairgrounds in Phoenix. This year it was held on Friday, December 9 and Saturday, December 10. It has been going on since 1994 volunteers provide not only free dental care but also free healthcare, prescription medications to the uninsured and under-insured.

AZ MOM has several clinics in Arizona, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Texas. There are six locations across the Valley. In Arizona they have “provided over 200,000 patient visits and 300,000 free prescription medications for the most vulnerable in our community.”

You do not have to be in the health care field to volunteer your time. Help is always needed and appreciated. You can assist in checking patients in, transferring them to their next location, and translators are always needed.

Mission

“To provide charitable dental care and education to Arizonans, reducing health risks and suffering for those in need.”

Make a Donation

It is tax deductible! “For every $2.00 donation we receive, we are able to give $16.00 of desperately needed care.”
