Mission of Mercy

Mission Of Mercy

The 2014 Mission of Mercy was held in Green Bay on June 27 and 28 and once again Madison Family Dental had a team of Volunteers participating.  Dr. Veerman, her assistant Valerie, and two members of our hygiene team, Bessie and Robin, headed up to Green Bay.

“We spent the night there so we could be ready for the very early start at 5:30 a.m. to begin seeing patients.” -Valerie

Dr. Veerman and Valerie saw patients to provide much-needed fillings all day. Bessie, who also has pharmacy experience, assisted in preparing prescriptions for patients following procedures, and Robin provided instructions in nutrition, health, and oral hygiene. In the afternoon Bessie and Robin saw patients for teeth cleanings. It was a great experience once again to be helping those in need.  Next year’s Mission of Mercy is in Fond du Lac, WI.
