About the Oncology Dental Support Clinic

Established in 1981 to serve as the intermediary between the oncologist and the dentist on behalf of the cancer patient, the UMKC Oncology Dental Support Clinic provides advice, education, consultation, and dental treatment related to oral health conditions and cancer therapies. One of the main goals of the clinic is to prevent and/or ease the oral complications associated with many cancer therapies and to identify and treat oral conditions that can result in serious complications as a result of cancer therapy. In addition to our oncology services, we also provide the necessary dental treatment for patients who are to have organ transplantation
procedures.

Make your reservation to attend

The cost is $185 per person or $1,850 for a table of 10.  You can include your individual reservations on your Midwest Dental Conference registration form or call (816) 235-2022 or email Donna Weber at weberd@umkc.edu for an invitation or additional information.
Your generosity over the past years has allowed the UMKC Oncology Dental Support Clinic to increase the number of patients served by 80 per cent.  On their behalf, the organizers of Pouring from the Heart thank you for your support.

We especially appreciate the support of the individuals and companies who so generously donated the extraordinary items offered for auction this year.

The money raised through Pouring from the Heart assists patients with cancer who are unable to pay for necessary dental treatment.  Your presence will enable the clinic to continue as an indispensable resource for cancer patients, oncologists and dentists, without having to reduce or deny any of its services to those in need.  On behalf of the clinic and organizers of Pouring from the Heart, we hope you will join us for a most memorable evening.  The generosity displayed by your attendance at this most worthwhile event is greatly appreciated.
