Dr. Alan Kessler and Dr. Tiffany Foster-Kessler participate in the Missions of Mercy (MOM) Project, which is a free dental clinic held in Portsmouth, Virginia. The clinic was held on April 28th, 2018 at I.C. Norcum Highschool in Portsmouth.

An estimated 3.8 million Virginians – more than 47% of our total population – do not have dental insurance according to the Virginia Health Care Foundation. Without access to affordable dental care, many people — especially those who are low-income, underinsured, disabled or seniors — are left to suffer pain, discomfort, and embarrassment with nowhere else to turn. To address the overwhelming need for access to free oral health care, Dr. Terry Dickinson, executive director of the Virginia Dental Association, created the Mission of Mercy (MOM) program in 2000 to provide high-quality dental care for underserved Virginians. The MOM program operates mobile clinics in strategic locations across the State, providing preventive, restorative, and surgical dental treatments to more than 4,000 low-income individuals each year.
