Dr. Briglia and son, Michael, help out at Mission of Mercy

A few weeks ago, Dr. Briglia and his son, Michael, joined hundreds of other dentists, hygienists, dental students and community members on June 1st at the “Mission of Mercy” free dental clinic to provide nearly 2,000 patients from underserved areas in the Philadelphia region with free dental care.

Throughout the two-day event, long lines of patients filtered in and out of the Liacouras Center where over 100 dental chairs were stationed as well as equipment to transform the arena into a full-service dental clinic.

Patients were able to receive a large variety of oral health services from cleanings to extractions, restorations, partial dentures and numerous other services.

Dr. Briglia’s role for the day was to see and treat patients for restorative dentistry while Michael, who is currently an undergrad student at Pitt, served as his assistant. 662 restorative surgeries were preformed during the clinic.

Throughout the clinic a remarkable amount of surgeries were performed including:

  • 662 restorative surgeries
  • 55 root canals
  • 19 partial dentures
  • 1,213 extractions
  • 324 cleanings
  • 171 full mouth debridements
  • 52 children seen

The large turn out for the event showed how large of a need there is for oral health services in the community. In total, an estimated $1 million in dental services were provided throughout the two-day clinic. Since 2000, more than 100,000 patients have been served at “Mission of Mercy” events in 20 states with hopes of more events occurring within Pennsylvania throughout the upcoming months.
