The East Texas Mission of Mercy (ETMOM) was held on Saturday, February 24th, 2018. ETMOM is a bi-annual mission that provides free dental treatments and eye examinations for low income families that cannot otherwise afford dental or eye care.
Screenings took place at Tyler Junior College, then patients were either treated there or sent to other Tyler area locations for treatment. Of the approximately 300 patients who were screened at TJC, Bethesda Health Clinic received and treated about 30. Services provided at Bethesda included dental examinations, extractions and fillings.
All of the dentists and dental assistants who participated at Bethesda were volunteers giving their time and skills for those in need.
