MoMOM: Missouri's Free Dental Clinic
We're thrilled to be participating for a 6th straight year in Missouri's Mission of Mercy free dental clinic weekend.
The first MoMOM event was held in Springfield, MO after the devastating Joplin tornado. Participating in the event was uplifting and heartwarming. Even being in the dental field, the true need for dental care in our country was shocking! Those receiving care were relieved of chronic pain and found their smiles again--some for the first time in decades!
It was obvious to Drs. Pat & Jan that such a large scale event could not be just a one time thing. This type of event was truly needed everywhere and on a regular basis. But, bringing such a large scale event back required far more planning and hoops to jump through than one would imagine! Dr. Janet Ruopp worked deligently with the Mission of Mercy organization to create an annual event in our state. The second annual MoMOM was held right here in Cape Girardeau, MO after countless hours meeting, organizing, fundraising, and, at times, pleading with Mission of Mercy organizers and contributors to see that a smaller, more rural area still had need of a large scale free dental clinic.
Since then, the Ruopp & Ruopp team has participated in not only providing care, but also chairing events in St. Louis, Columbia, and Independence, Missouri. MoMOM events consistently provide an average of over $1,000,000 in free dental care over two very busy days which start in the wee hours and last well into the evening. We appreciate you allowing us to give back to our local and state communities by chooses our office for dental services and giving us a few days out of the office to travel to these amazing events! We encourage you to learn more about MoMOM events here and check out this awesome video of MoMOM 2015 held in Columbia, MO
Volunteers of all types are always needed!
Is your partner's snoring keeping you from getting a good night's sleep?
We offer sleep evaluation and appliances to relieve snoring and the related, but more serious sleep apnea.
Sleep deprivation results in a high blood pressure and stroke as well as several other medical conditions. So whether you are up all night because a snoring bed partner or not getting adequate sleep because of a sleep disorder, we can help! We offer oral appliances to help with snoring as well as sleep apnea appliances for individuals who cannot tolerate CPAP therapy--the traditional sleep apnea treatment.
And even if CPAP works well for you, it is not the most portable solution and many travelers prefer the small, oral appliances when traveling. Ask us about your sleep solutions today!
