The Nebraska MOM program provides care to the uninsured, the under-insured and anyone who otherwise has difficulty getting to a dentist. Care will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis for both children and adults as long as there are no underlying medically compromising conditions that would prohibit them from receiving care.
In Nebraska, a successful MOM event focuses on:
An important element of the Nebraska MOM program is patient education. Education is the most cost-effective way to reduce oral disease among the low-income population, including MA patients. A program to help patients understand the importance of good daily oral hygiene practices, healthy diet and routine preventive dental care is an essential part of every NDA MOM event.
In addition to receiving needed dental treatment, MOM patients learn the importance of good daily oral hygiene practices, healthy diet and routine preventive dental care. It's a fact that such things ultimately save money and time in the dentist office.
They learn about the negative effects of soda, sugary beverages and tobacco products, the link between dental health and overall health, oral cancer and more.
For each NDA Mission of Mercy event, funds are needed to help cover dental equipment and facility rental, supplies, pharmaceuticals and food costs. For every $1 in hard-dollar donations we receive, NDA dentists and other MOM volunteers are able to provide $5 - $7 of care.
