Our Austin branch recently donated supplies and volunteered at the Texas Mission of Mercy (TMOM) program held on Thursday, July 31st, Friday August 1st and Saturday, August 2nd. Burkhart associates Bryan Foreman, Branch Manager, Michael Zuelke, Account Manager, Carlos Munoz, Service Technician, and Paul Warner, Service Technician, assisted at the event that provided a value of care worth $555,699 to the community. Approximately 860 people were served by 125 dentists that volunteered their time and resources to make the event a success.
The Texas Mission of Mercy is a program within the TDA Smiles Foundation that provides basic dental care to those in need in their community through its mobile dental clinic. The TMOM website describes the program as being focused, "on relieving pain. Volunteer dentists examine and will determine the most necessary treatment for each patient. The main goal of TMOM is to relieve pain and restore smiles.1"
We love giving back to the community and are happy to support such a wonderful program.
