Local orthodontics firm participates in free dental Mission of Mercy

Olson Orthodontics Pic¬† ¬†Olson Orthodontics participated in the Illinois State Dental Society’s Mission of Mercy in Collinsville this past weekend. The event provided free dental care to those in need. Dr. Lauren Hood-Olson estimated that nearly 1,500 patients were served over two days and more than $1 million of dental services were provided.

“It’s been a blessing to serve on the local committee and along side all the amazing ISDS staff and doctors that made this happen for the last couple years. My whole body is sore, my feet hurt, and definitely could use a nap today, however this mission made a difference in this community and helped people to smile,” said Dr. Hood-Olson. (Submitted Photo)
