Slice: Dr. Kelly Moore's dental office sets off on mission possible

AURORA – Helping others was the goal of Dr. Kelly Moore and the rest of his staff from Kelly Moore Dentistry, and Mission Possible, a free dental clinic in Aurora, was the outlet.

Moore, specializing in general and cosmetic dentistry here in Rockford, learned of the need for volunteer dentist work at the Aurora clinic, and he and his staff bolted into action. They spent a month clearing the schedule for a day, and on March 13, Dr. Moore and three others from his office made the trek to Aurora, looking to help anybody they could.

“They called, they were backlogged and needed our help, and we saw it as a chance to give back, and to help someone in need,” Moore said. “It was everyone’s choice, it was a volunteer day, so we shut down the office, picked everything up and went to help. Everybody there was super appreciative.”

Mission Possible serves people who are uninsured and unable to afford care elsewhere. Since opening in 2012, more than a half million dollars worth of free healthcare has been provided in dental, medical, vision and orthopedic clinics. Mission Possible’s mission statement: It is privately funded and independently governed and is dedicated to holistically meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of Aurora.
