MOM 2011 (Wausau)

WDA Mission of Mercy LogoThe WDA and WDA Foundation wrapped up their third Mission of Mercy in the Wausau area in June 2011, providing free dental care to more patients than originally planned.

The Greenheck Field House and a high school gym in Weston were transformed into a large-scale, charitable dental clinic on June 24 and 25. Volunteers recorded 2,141 patient visits with adults and children receiving teeth cleanings, fillings, extractions, treatment partials and oral hygiene education as needed.

Estimated value of care exceeded $1.12 million. A team of 1,050 volunteers from 163 Wisconsin communities were involved.

The first patients lined up on Wednesday, two days before clinic doors opened at 6 a.m. last Friday.
