It's that time again!  We are starting to get things arranged for the 2011 Oregon Mission of Mercy dental clinic that is being held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, November 20-23.  We'll set up on Sunday, treat patients on Monday and Tuesday, and tear down Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning (if needed).
  
You are receiving this email because you either volunteered at the 2010 clinic, signed up to receive email updates and/or are an ODA member dentist/dental student.  We look forward to seeing you at OrMOM 2011!

What's new in 2011?
  
Thanks to the Oregon Convention Center's generosity in providing us with additional space, we'll be able to bring the patients INSIDE to wait for treatment!  The clinic will still be first come, first served, but at 4am on Monday and Tuesday mornings, we'll open the doors to the first 1,000 people in line.  We will get them registered and have oral and other health education stations set up in the waiting area.  This also means that some of the departments will open earlier than they did last year, as we'd like to have bodies in the dental chairs and dentists working at 6 am.  Keep an eye on the OrMOM website for more information on the 2011 clinic.
