In Southwest Virginia, there is a profound need for access to affordable dental services for low-income, uninsured, and underserved adults. For the past five years, the Roanoke Mission of Mercy Project has provided over $4 million in free dental services to over 5000 adults in the Roanoke Valley and surrounding areas. The Roanoke Mission of Mercy Project is conducted one weekend each year and uses portable dental equipment for cleanings, x-rays, oral surgery, and fillings.
The Roanoke Mission of Mercy is brought to the Roanoke Valley through a partnership with the Community Based Health Care Coalition and the Council of Community Services. Support from the Virginia Dental Association, Carilion Clinic, Delta Dental of Virginia, United Way of Roanoke Valley, VCU School of Dentistry, and many other sponsors has allowed this clinic to continue into its sixth year.
