First Mission of Mercy event in Washington, DC serves 700+ patients.
WASHINGTON, DC — (November 30, 2015) A cross-section of impressive imaging-related technologies from KaVo Kerr Group were put to use by hundreds of dental professionals who volunteered with the Mission of Mercy event hosted by the American Dental Association in cooperation with the District of Columbia Dental Society. Headquartered in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center as part of ADA 2015 — America’s Dental Meeting, this was the first Mission of Mercy event to take place in Washington, DC.
Held Nov. 8, 2015, the free one-day dental clinic employed hundreds of volunteers to serve more than 700 patients in providing approximately $460,000 in care. KaVo Kerr Group supported the clinic with intra-oral X-ray, pan and caries detection products provided by DEXISTM, Instrumentarium DentalTM and NOMADTM. Teams of volunteers from DEXIS and Instrumentarium also donated their time and expertise to the event.
“The solutions provided by KaVo Kerr Group allow us to serve 99% of dental practices around the world. It is meaningful for those of us who are part of KaVo Kerr Group to participate in events like Mission of Mercy in order to see the individual faces of that 99% and, more importantly, the patients who benefit from our products,” said Candy Ross, KaVo Kerr Group’s Director of Industry and Professional Relations for Dental Technologies, North America. “We talk a lot about trust as a core value in our company. It is trust in the products themselves, and trust in our organization to show up for events like this so that smart innovation makes it into the hands of compassionate dental professionals committed to doing good.”
