The OkMOM Legacy Fund was established in July of 2022 to ensure essential dental care could be provided to patients in need during the 2025 OkMOM event and beyond. Please join us in making a pledge or one-time gift and help us secure the future of this life-changing event!
Since its inception in 2010, the Oklahoma Mission of Mercy (OkMOM) has been the most significant dental outreach event in our state. Thousands of dental professionals have come together over the years to provide essential dental care to Oklahomans. Volunteer dentists, specialists, hygienists, assistants, and students have treated 17,381 patients and provided over $14.2 million in donated dental care. While the treatment is donated, there is still a substantial cost of $150-$200K to operate the event each year. The ODA Board of Trustees has decided to dissolve the partnership with the Delta Dental of Oklahoma Charitable Foundation after the 2024 event.
The Oklahoma Dental Association/Oklahoma Dental Foundation has received an incredibly generous gift from an anonymous ODA member and spouse who are committed to ensuring OkMOM continues well into the future. The $448,000 donation is being made as a dollar-for-dollar matching challenge, to be completed by June 30, 2023. This matching gift campaign will be the foundation for the new OkMOM Legacy Fund and will be the funding source for the 2025 OkMOM event and beyond.
We ask you to join us now by making your monthly, quarterly, annual, or one-time gift. Please help ensure essential dental care continues to be provided each year during the Oklahoma Mission of Mercy!
