The Michigan Dental Association Foundation just completed a very successful Mission of Mercy (MOM) project at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI.  Over 900 people were treated with an estimated value of over $900,000.  Many smiles were seen both days as volunteers and patients alike benefited from the greatest gift of all...giving of one's talents and skills. 
The Mission of Mercy organizers and leaders consisted of many ICD Michigan Chapter members.  Drs. Steve Harris and Connie Verhagen have served as co-chairs since 2012.  Department Leads include Drs. Scott Hodges, Michael Maihofer, Daniel Briskie, Susan Carron, John Carter, Bonita Neighbors, Denise Polk, Margaret Gingrich, Vince Benivegna, Howard Hamerink and Chris Smiley.  Many more ICD Fellows volunteered for direct patient care including Drs. Alexa Vitek-Hitchcock, Eric Knudsen, Jason Golnick. Bill Metz, Michele Tulak-Gorecki, Bob Tremblay, Michelle Matheson, Shelly Jones, Irene Tseng, Cheri Newman, Mark Johnston, Norm Palm, Josef Kolling and Ghabi Kaspo.  Special thanks to Dr. Michael Vander Veen for his part in fundraising for the event.

This truly shows that ICD Fellows are leaders and humanitarians at heart!

Thank you for giving your time to "Serve Others!"
