Gardner Orthodontics Volunteers at MOM Event

By July 20, 2015November 25th, 2020No Comments

Dr. Gardner and Dr. Sturgil spent their weekend volunteering at Wise MOM – a 2 ½ day dental clinic conducted each year in July to provide free dental services including cleanings, fillings, oral surgery, x-rays and dentures. The MOM pilot project was held in Wise County in 2000. Since that time, 19,060 Southwest Virginia area patients have received free dental care valued at $ 15.3 million.

There is a profound need for access to affordable dental services in Southwest Virginia. Wise MOM is a 2 ½ day dental clinic conducted each year in July to provide free dental services. Wise MOM is made possible by partnerships with the Virginia Dental Association, VCU School of Dentistry and Dental Hygiene, The Health Wagon, Remote Area Medical, Virginia Health Care Foundation and a host of other sponsors.
