MOM provides free dental care to patients who otherwise do not have the means or access to care. The clinic is set up in a convention center and patients are seen on a first-come, first-served basis until capacity is met. There are no criteria or limitations on who may be treated other than they must meet the minimum health standards. It takes 1,000 volunteers to run the clinic. Volunteer to change lives. The 2024 Mission of Mercy (MOM) will be held June 28 & 29 at the Peoria Civic Center in Peoria, IL. Register now at


Operating an independent dental practice can be stressful and expensive – but it doesn’t have to be!

Most practices spend countless hours price shopping and ordering from multiple vendors. While you may save a few bucks, this method costs more in the long run, in administrative time and shipping charges.

Instead, ISDS members can join Independent Dental Solutions (IDS), a free buying group that provides year- round savings on supplies, equipment, continuing education and more.

The result? Effortless savings on everything your practice needs. Find out how much you could save with IDS with a FREE Cost Comparison.
