The Mission’s dental clinic provided skilled, compassionate care for those in need.

The Mission establishes a free dental clinic, providing much-needed services for those who are uninsured or living in poverty. Staffed by students from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and other volunteers, the clinic begins a long tradition of bringing smiles to people in need. By 2015, nearly 2,300 adults and children are served in the clinic each year.

In 2017, the dental clinic is established as an independent organization — Hope Dental Clinic — in expanded facilities on St. Paul’s East Side.
