This has been an incredible event. More than 200 dentists, supported by more than 400 other dental professionals and more than 1000 other volunteers, treated more than 2100 patients over two days for free on a first come, first served basis providing everything from cleanings and fillings to root canals and partial dentures. It has been an incredible event event over October 15-16, 2010. That makes it the largest inaugural Mission of Mercy event ever. Mrs. Critter and I are so glad we volunteered.
UPDATE: We have been given what appear to be final numbers from the NM MOM event. The dentists treated 2201 patients in the two-day event. 8724 separate procedures were completed, valued at $1.3 million. (From what one of the event dentists told us, that may actually be the wholesale value.) Still an amazing event.
