ARMOM is scheduled every year. Stay tuned for more information.

ARMOM is an annual two-day free dental clinic sponsored by the Arkansas State Dental Association for underserved Arkansans. All services are provided free of charge by members of the Arkansas State Dental Association, assisted by a host of volunteers. ARMOM provides dental care for the relief of pain to underserved Arkansans, many of whom are from working families who do not have access or cannot afford dental insurance.

Since ARMOM was started in 2007, over 8,084 patients have been seen in only ten total clinic days! The number of procedures performed has been phenomenal: 15,967 extractions of bad teeth, and 7,738 fillings and other restorations. These donated procedures were worth and estimated $4 million. Many of these patients might otherwise have no hope of receiving care.
