Helping MOM – A New Year’s Resolution You Can Keep!

Don’t forget that the second Mission of Mercy dental access event will take place May 30-31, 2014, on the campus of Ferris State University in Big Rapids. It’s a joint project of the Michigan Dental Association and the MDA Foundation.
This year, why not make MOM volunteering one of your New Year’s resolutions?
Volunteering for the MOM is rewarding for dentists, dental team members, dental students, and others. Last year nearly 1,000 volunteered for the inaugural MOM event at Saginaw Valley University. Volunteer sign up is expected to begin in March.

You MUST complete an ADA Commission on Dental Accreditation approved (or substantially similar) class to expose X-rays in Michigan. It is the LAW!
