"It's Not Charity, It's Sharing."
Increasing Oral Health Awareness and Decreasing Oral Health Care Disparities
One Community at a Time
Letter from Our Founder
“The Service you do for others is the rent you pay for your room here on Earth.” Muhammad Ali
I’ve always been a fan of Muhammad Ali, maybe it’s because I met him when I was a youngster, or because he was a champion who seemed bigger than life and stood up for principles that he believed in. In recent years, I came across this quote of his and smiled at the thought that maybe we are kindred spirits. This foundational belief (of gratitude) is the reason we do missions, it’s the reason why so many of us feel the need to give of ourselves. Paying for our room here on Earth is the reason why we travel far and wide to nations “unknown” to provide care to those most in need.
MouthPeace Dental Group, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that exists to increase the oral health awareness and to decrease oral health disparities. We serve the needs of underserved people in areas where access to dental care is limited or nonexistent. On our missions, groups of like minded people from diverse backgrounds come together as a team to provide free dental care to populations who otherwise may not get the care that they need.
We provide oral health care education, perform exams, cleanings, sealants (if facilities allow direct restorations/fillings) and extractions as needed. We know that people with healthy mouths are more likely to have healthy lives; with this is mind our volunteers will provide dental care and education needed to achieve life long dental health. For many, this will be the first oral health education and dental care by a dental professional.
If you are interested in being a part of our team, please contact us for additional details. If you are unable to fit the “mission field” into your schedule and would like to be a part of helping us help others; please partner with us by donating. All proceeds collected will go directly to providing much needed dental care.
In the spirit of love, gratitude and service I say..... May our efforts be a testament of our gratitude for our room here on Earth.
