The Delta Dental of Oklahoma Oral Health Foundation has developed a guide for individuals in need of care.
This guide is published to:
- Help those who cannot afford dental care find free and low-cost resources.
- Help referral sources assist those in need to find care

Oklahoma Mission of Mercy
The next Oklahoma Mission of Mercy will be in Woodward, OK on February 3-4, 2017.
The Oklahoma Mission of Mercy, is a two-day, MASH-style free dental clinic designed to treat the most pressing needs of patients that are either uninsured, underinsured or would normally not have access to dental care. At this event, patients will undergo medical and dental triage to identify their needs and then be routed to the appropriate areas of treatment: oral surgery, extractions, restorations, pediatrics and cleanings.
Since 2010, Oklahoma Mission of Mercy has treated 12,175 patients, equaling $8,742,959 in donated dental services. This two-day clinic is designed to meet the critical needs of dental patients of all ages by providing free dental care to as many adults and children as time, volunteers and supplies will allow. OkMOM is sponsored by the Oklahoma Dental Association, the Oklahoma Dental Foundation and primarily funded by the Delta Dental of Oklahoma Oral Health Foundation. The Oklahoma State Department of Health endorses and supports our mission.
MobileSmiles Oklahoma is a nonprofit dental care program dedicated to eliminating barriers to dental care access. With the vital help of volunteer dental professionals, our program utilizes two RV-style mobile dental units that travel across the entire state of Oklahoma delivering free dental care and education. In order to serve patients in need, the MobileSmiles Oklahoma program depends on local site partners (nonprofits, schools, churches and agencies) to host the mobile unit in their communities. These site partners qualifying patients and set appointments for the mobile unit site visit. Individual patients cannot set appointments through MobileSmiles.
