The 2014 Illinois Mission of Mercy was held in Peoria on June 20th and 21st, and what a successful event it was.  Along with others from our own Illinois Valley, I was grateful to be one of 1,000 volunteers who came from all over the state.  This year, due to other obligations, I was only able to be part of the set-up group on the 19th, and I truly missed the chair-side treatment of patients that I had experienced in the previous two Missions of Mercy.  Here are the amazing results of those two days of treatment at no charge to patients:

  • 1,000 volunteers
  • 1,951 patient visits
  • $1,072,190 in treatment performed
  • 1,990 extracted teeth
  • 1,265 fillings
  • 765 hygiene visits
  • 135 partial dentures
  • 377 x-rays
  • 61 root canals
