chairs and equipment ready for patients

Southern Maryland Mission of Mercy (SMMOM) provides dental services for adult patients (ages 19 and above) that include:

  • Preventative dentistry and cleaning
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Restorative fillings
  • Extractions

All dental services are provided by licensed dentists and hygienists.

You will receive a brief medical screening. If you have a condition that requires approval by your physician to be treated, please bring that authorization with you.

You will receive a dental evaluation. If you require treatment for multiple dental problems, the treating dentist will determine what procedures will be addressed that day.

The Event

The clinic is free and serves clients on a first come, first served basis.

The doors will open at 6:00 am and the line will close between about 7:30 am and 8:30 am when the clinic is full for the day.

There will be no accommodations for children at this event, so children (under age 19) will not be allowed into the building.

  • list of your current medications
  • any medications that you may need throughout the day
  • snacks and water
  • physician’s authorization for treatment, if needed. Medical conditions that would require physician approval include, but not limited to, heart conditions, prosthetic heart valve, joint replacement, on a blood thinner, recent chemotherapy or radiation treatment.
