The Nebraska Mission of Mercy program provides care to the uninsured, the under-insured and anyone who otherwise has difficulty getting to a dentist. Those who show up for care, children and adults, and don't have any medically compromising condition that would prohibit them from receiving care are seen on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Originating in Virginia and spreading throughout the United States, Mission of Mercy dental programs have provided 100,000 patients with nearly $50 million in free dental services and treatment since 2000.
Provide access to basic dental care services at no charge to anyone regardless of financial need
No person turned away as long as we are physically able to see them
"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much"
Nebraska was the fourth state to hold a Mission of Mercy, following Virginia and Texas in 2001 and Kansas in 2003. Nebraska held its first NMOM in North Platte, NE October 20-21, 2005. Since then, NMOM has see over 15,000 patients and provided over $6 million in FREE dental care
Dentists from all over give of their time, talent energy and love for such a project. All of their services are donated. Many of them bring their office staff and personal office supplies to help make the event a great success.
Each community provides expert assistance from non-dental volunteers who also give of their time talent and energy to help their neighbors and friends who may not be as fortunate as some.

I am just blown away about how smooth everything went. This was the best dental experience I ever had. Thank you SO much.
I was one of the many people that was seen on Saturday. I finally took a big step in making a better smile for myself and conquered a fear as well. I am extremely thankful...
"I’ve volunteered at three Nebraska Mission of Mercy events—the only word that even comes close is ‘AMAZING!’ This is such a gift to our communities and to our state. All I can say is THANK YOU DENTISTS, STAFFS AND VOLUNTEERS!"
