Mission of Mercy

Giving Back to Silver Spring


Drs. Eric and Kevin Chai are truly dedicated to helping make their community a healthier place. The brothers are proud to be a part of Mission of Mercy, an organization that, for the last 25 years, has been providing free healthcare, dental care, and medication to those who are uninsured or have otherwise “fallen through the cracks” of the healthcare system. To date, Mission of Mercy has provided over 200,000 individual visits for people who need it most.

One of the main reasons that Drs. Eric and Kevin Chai became dentists was to help improve the lives of others and give them instant relief from their pain. Many of the people that the brothers are able to serve at Mission of Mercy have endured chronic pain and will stand in line for hours just to receive dental treatment. It's an amazing privilege and opportunity to be able to make an immediate impact on patient's lives and allow them to live a relatively normal life again without pain. Drs. Eric and Kevin Chai love volunteering at these types of events to help the underserved and plan on continuing to partner with Mission of Mercy for years to come.
