NM Mission of Mercy

Out-of-State Participation

Can Out-of-State Dentists & Hygienists Participate?

Absolutely! Dentists and dental hygienists, with a license in good standing from their respective state, may volunteer for the New Mexico Mission of Mercy program.

Our NM MOM event has received official sanctioning from the state licensing board. Dentists and dental hygienists, who have graduated from a school accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation, with a license in good standing from their respective state, will be granted a presumptive temporary license for the charity event. No application is needed, but verification of license in good standing will be completed by the NMDAF.

Please bring a copy of your diploma to the event. If you have any questions, please call Trish Rule at 505.298.7206 Ext 201.

If the dental school you graduated from is not a CODA accredited school, by New Mexico state law you are not eligible for a temporary license and you will not be able to treat patients. If you would like to help, but fall into this category, please volunteer in another area.
