Volunteers Needed for the 2021 Florida Mission of Mercy

The Florida Mission of Mercy (FLA-MOM) is a large-scale, two-day, professional dental clinic that provides care to any patient at no cost to them, with the goal of serving the under-served and uninsured in Florida — those who would otherwise go without care.

The 2021 FLA-MOM will take place on July 30-31 in Jacksonville at the Prime Osborne III Convention Center. Increased safety procedures and all COVID-19 guidelines and protocols will be implemented — the safety of all volunteers and patients is the FDA Foundation’s top priority. Since 2014, FLA-MOM has treated nearly 10,000 patients and provided 49,000+ procedures, for a total value of care of $9.43 million. We need your help to continue our impact in 2021 in the Northeast Florida region! Register today at flamom.org.

Funding Donated Dental Services will help Florida’s most vulnerable get life-saving care

By Dr. Cesar Sabates

“The mouth is the window into the health of the body” is a well-known phrase in the health care community.

As a dentist who has practiced for 30 years, I know that this statement is true.

I’ve treated patients who could not undergo transplants until the infections in their mouths were treated, and I’ve treated patients who couldn’t eat or sleep properly because of the pain of gum infection and decayed teeth, which can be associated with medical conditions such as diabetes.

Dr. Cesar Sabates is president of Florida Donated Dental Services, a past president of the Florida Dental Association, a Trustee of the American Dental Association and a practicing dentist in Coral Gables.
