This past weekend I had the privilege of participating in the Arkansas Mission of Mercy. This event, also known as ArMOM, is an event where dentists from all parts of the state provide free dental treatment for underserved Arkansans. This year the event took place at the University of Arkansas at Monticello. As an orthodontist, I myself wondered if I was going to be able to participate. There was no way I could perform orthodontic treatment in just two days! But before anyone becomes an orthodontist, they are trained as a general dentist. So this was a unique opportunity to put those skills learned in dental school to good use.
