OrMOM Volunteer News2/19/2013

It's that time again!

 

We are starting to get things arranged for our fourth (!!!) Oregon Mission of Mercy dental clinic! 
  
We will be back at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, November 24-27, 2013.  We'll set up on Sunday, treat patients on Monday and Tuesday, and tear down on Tuesday evening and, if needed, Wednesday morning.
  
One Truck or Two?  
Thanks to the generosity of the Oregon Convention Center, we have plenty of space available to double our size and hold a 2-truck (i.e. 200 chair) clinic.  Our concern about increasing the size of this free dental clinic stems on our ability to find enough volunteers to serve this excess capacity.  As you'll see below, registration is now open.  Please take the time to block November 25th & 26th on your calendar, and register now to volunteer at the 2013 Oregon Mission of Mercy.  We will be watching volunteer registration as we make the final decision of whether we can help 2,000 or 3,000 patients.  You can very easily make a difference in someone's life this Thanksgiving! 
  
  
You have received this email because you either volunteered at a previous clinic, signed up to receive email updates, and/or are an ODA member dentist/dental student.  We look forward to seeing you at OrMOM 2013!
