The next Oklahoma Mission of Mercy is planned to be held in Shawnee, OK in February 2022.


The 2021 Oklahoma Mission of Mercy was cancelled due to an abundance of caution regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Our leadership prioritizes the health and safety of our patients, volunteers and communities above all else.

The Oklahoma Mission of Mercy, or OkMOM, is a two-day, free dental clinic offering treatment to patients that are uninsured, under-insured or would normally not have access to dental care.  At the event, patients will undergo a dental screening to identify their needs and determine a treatment plan.  Each patient is then routed to the appropriate areas of the clinic: oral surgery, extractions, restorations, pediatrics and hygiene.  Each year, OkMOM volunteers anticipate treating as many patients as possible over the course of the clinic.  

Apply for a Special Volunteer License

 if you are a retired dentist, or practice outside of OK.

NOTE: Each volunteer must pick up their own nametag and t-shirt. Group pick-up is not available. NO EXCEPTIONS.


EVERY volunteer is required to sign a consent form before they enter the treatment floor.  You can pre-download the form here to sign and bring with you HERE to speed up the registration process.  You do not need to provide a copy of your Hep B vaccination card, but please know your vaccination status so you can correctly mark it on the consent form.
