Oral Health Tobacco Program


December 11-12, 2015 Mission of Mercy Event

The Central Arizona Dental Society (CADS) Foundation will host its fourth Mission of Mercy (MOM) event at the Arizona Fairgrounds in Phoenix, AZ, December 11 & 12, 2015 utilizing 100 portable dental units and 1500 volunteers. Approximately $1,500,000 in free care is expected to be delivered to 2,000 patients. Both children and adults will be seen. Basic dental care includes items such as: fillings, extractions and cleanings. Limited lab work (i.e., stainless-steel crowns for children, treatment partials) will be offered. The program is unable to treat patients with specific medically-compromising conditions (e.g., extremely high blood pressure, high blood sugar, severe disabilities).

This program provides continuing education to dental professionals. The course emphasizes:


  • oral manifestations of tobacco use

  • the critical role that dental professionals play in helping their patients quit,

  • how to alleviate the debilitating and costly public health problem of tobacco use, and

  • information on free cessation services provided by the Arizona Smokers' Helpline.


We also invite your participation in our Smokeless Tobacco Coalition, which meets the third Friday of the month.
