Giving Back – KMOM

dr-lorie-topekaTopeka dentist Dr. Lorie Baumgardner was thrilled with the opportunity to once again donate her time and dental services to the Kansas Mission of Mercy (KMOM) in Wichita, KS this past weekend. The Kansas Dental Charitable Foundation sponsors free dental clinics to provide cleanings, fillings, and extractions to underprivileged people, families, and children around the state of Kansas whom might not be able to afford these dental services otherwise. KMOM is part of the Kansas Dental Charitable Foundation, which with the help of dentists such as Dr. Lorie Baumgardner of Topeka and dental professionals alike, they helped “make a difference” by donating over $7.5 million in dental services to more than 17,000 Kansas residents. The Foundation was established in 2002 with a grant by the Kansas Dental Association Relief Fund. Dr. Lorie holds this event near and dear to her heart as it’s a great way to give back while doing what she loves. Topeka was lucky enough to host this event a few years back.
