… so a child can sleep at 
 night without dental pain
… so a man with a beautiful 
voice can feel better about himself as he sings
… so a young girl with a
 badly chipped tooth will not  be embarrassed to start  middle school 
… so a father, who has
given everything he has tocare for his children, canfinally get the dental carehe needs
These stories are real. WhenGlenna smiled at her twopre-teenaged daughters atKMOM, it was a true gift. It was the first time either hadseen their mother smile. Thesingle mother of two wasgiven a full set of dentures.That amounted to $700 ofdental care and a very happy mother. Lives havebeen changed because ofthe work done by our volun-teers.There are thousands of peo-ple in Manhattan alone whohave unmet dental need. Without KMOM, many ofthese people will never getthe care they need. Eachpatient has their own story and with your help, we canmake a difference.

The Kansas Mission of Mercy was modeled after similar programs in Virginia and Texas. Our concept is tocreate a dental clinic and then open our doors to the community. We target our services to low-incomeindividuals and families through local churches, community programs and service organizations.Patients are screened and treated based on their most urgent dental needs
extractions, fillings, oralsurgery and dental hygiene. Those services are then provided by one of our volunteers
hundreds oflicensed dentists and hygienists who have donated their talents to treat patients. The greatest part oftheir service is that it is done absolutely free.
Here is what we have done to date:
KMOM-Topeka was held February 2-3, 2007 at the Kansas Expocen-tre in the capital city. During thetwo days,
1,816
patients receiveddental care totaling
