IMOM Iowa Mission of Mercy

The 2019 Iowa Mission of Mercy was held in Davenport on September 19-20. It was a fantastic event where free dental care was given to anyone willing to wait in line.

Patient History
38% of 2019 IMOM patients indicated that it had been at least one to five years since their last dental visit. 20% of patients said it had been more than five years.

57% of 2019 IMOM patients lived within 30 minutes of the local IMOM event. 20% of patients traveled over 2 hours to receive the free dental care.

Pain Relief
Nearly 44% of IMOM Patients in 2019 had been living with dental related pain for two months or longer before receiving care at IMOM.

IMOM 2019 served nearly 1,000 patients with over 4,800 procedures and treatments totaling more than $813,000 at no cost to any of the patients.

It takes hundreds of volunteers to make this clinic run smoothly. The patients are very appreciative and often have tears in their eyes when they give a hug to their provider. Consider volunteering at next years IMOM 2020 to be held in Des Moines at the Iowa State Fairgrounds Varied Industries Building on November 6-7, 2020.
