Volunteering at the RI Mission of Mercy project provides a sense of commitment and service with ourselves, our communities and our state. It is a soul satisfying experience because it comes from the goodness of your own heart, with no expectation of receiving anything in return. Your service at an RI MOM event also highlights the continued problem of access to care to the citizens, legislature, and leaders of Rhode Island.

RI MOM needs you! Learn about how you can help and what to expect as a dental/medical volunteer. Continue reading to learn more about what to expect.

I'm from out of state; can I volunteer?
Absolutely! Please review the information on the right hand column of this page.

Do I need to carry Malpractice Insurance?
Most professional liability plans will cover you while at RI MOM. Please check with your carrier for verification. RI MOM has insurance in place that will cover those without their own coverage.

Is there training?
Yes. All Dental/Medical volunteers will receive a link to a PDF training informational document from your clinical area lead as well as an orientation video. You will receive this information the week of the event. It is very important you read this information prior to RIMOM. In addition, your lead will hold a brief training before the start of their shift to familiarize you with the clinic.

What to Wear:
Typical dress for dental personnel is scrubs. Otherwise, dress is casual -- whatever is most comfortable for you. Remember to wear closed-toed shoes and long pants! All dental volunteers will be given an RI MOM scrub top, and are required to wear it during the clinic.

What to Bring:
PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR
(loupes/lights if desired).  Gloves, masks and disposable gowns will be provided.

Meals:
A volunteer lounge is available for breaks. Breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages will be provided at no cost to our volunteers. No food is allowed in the dental clinic.

Personal Belongings:
There are no secure areas for your personal belongings. We suggest locking them in your car.

PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR OWN INSTRUMENTS:
In past years personal instruments were encouraged; but due to compliance issues, we can no longer allow outside instruments and materials in the clinics.
Please note: We have vastly increased the number and type of instruments available.
