Alaska Mission of Mercy Project

ICD Global Visionary Fund and Henry Schein Cares Foundation granted over $5,000 US in dental supplies to the Alaska Mission of Mercy (AKMOM) dental project in Anchorage, AK, USA, on April 29-30, 2016. Partnering with the Alaska Dental Society, local community donors and volunteers, this was the 3rd dental project led by the AKMOM. The primary goals of this mission were to: Provide free access to dental care while placing a high priority on patients suffering from dental infections or pain; Raise public awareness of the increasing difficulty low-income adults and children face in accessing critical dental care; Encourage low-income patients, policymakers and dental professionals to work together to reduce the disease burden and improve the oral health of Alaskan residents. ICD USA Fellows, Dr. Julie Robinson and Dr. David Nielson, were in charge of applying for the grant and implementing the project
